Recently the boys completed their reading charts and so we thought it was time for a reward that was bigger than a Trader Joes Organic Sucker.
They each got to choose a Beta Fish.
These fish needed a new home, but I was not about to buy three fish bowls at $20 a piece and then fill the bottom with a bag of $6 marbles.
Mason jars are pretty.
And as much as I love "What About Bob" the jars just felt temporary.
So what do you do? You head to your local thrift store and find 3 fun glass jars for $1.99 and then let the kids fill the bottom with their own toys, money, rubber-bands, etc. The kids are so proud of the finished product and they each named their own fish.
Hooray for creative rewards!
How do you reward your kids?
