Homemade craft: Kids behavior chart

Hello everyone! I want to share something with you that my seven year old suggested we try. Her school used a form of behavior chart to monitor each child behavior throughout the day. So, I took her suggestion and ran with it! My kids like to play and yes they get a little crazy so I thought this was a great idea!

After researching ALOT , and finding different ways to make them, I finally came up with my own thing and I started making it! I grabbed a long piece of carboard (about 24 inches long and 8 inches wide) and index cards and started writing and drawing and coloring.
My final piece included 7 index cards taped going vertically on to the cardboard. The top one in purple with really excited smiley face, next one down in pink with an excited face, next one in blue with a really happy face, next(which is where we start off each day) in green with a happy face, orange with a sad face, yellow with a plain face, and red with a mad face! I used clothes pins with their names on it to move to each face through out the day. If they are in purple they get a special treat and if they're in red, they lose a privilege!
It has worked well so far! I will post a picture of my chart tomorrow!

Oh my gosh, you know what it is like you read my mind! I also wrote a blog post on my website about a similar thing about 2 or 3 years ago.

I was struggling with my daughters behavior and emotions when she was a toddler and I made a rewards chart for her. She was like two years old then so we couldn't make it very complicated. We just decorated a piece of paper and I bought gold stars. I would reward anything that was good behavior with a gold star and when she had ten gold stars I would treat her with something.

She started living for gold stars. They became more important than the treat.

I love the idea of rewarding good behavior and now we have proper magnetic rewards charts on our fridge... courtesy of a blog review I did for someone that does personalized reward charts.

Whether you make your own (buckets of fun) or buy one somewhere this is something I recommend every mom makes use of. It can really make such a massive behavior change and it is done in a positive way that makes your kids happy! Bonus!

exactly! I had to do something because sometimes they would get out of control with their attitudes and behavior that i figured maybe if they could see and look forward to something, it would help them want to behave better! and it worked!

It's really great that the teacher would really ask them to run such a craft at home. I mean doing a behaviour craft of the friends at school is really something she/he might have felt needed to do and I'm glad you helped in making that happen.

This is nice way of learning from kids since it can set there mood too. they will feel like they are only playing but at the same time they are learning new things. i will apply this method to my home tutor kid to make him more interested to study.

That is a great way to handle kids and to be honest, it looks fun. I don't have kids right now but when the time comes, I will try it to them. I hope they will obey and follow it. It is far from those old days we used to. Well this is the modern way to interact with your kids. I think it is not hard to do.

Super idea. I think that it is important to teach kids from an early age what is acceptable or not. You have to teach that the are boundaries. If they cross those boundaries then they are consequences. I like this chart because it is simple and has illustrations. I think it is very easy for a child to understand and for them to know what consequences are attached to their behaviour. It is also a pretty simple way of teaching them the difference between right and wrong.
