I love this idea. Start a savings shadow box with a picture of what they're saving for. This would also be cool for the kids, to teach them to save for something. I think I will frame a picture of my sofa I want to save for. Good idea not just for kids.
wish I had thought of this when my kids were small. We used kitchen chairs.Using tension rods to make a tent in the hallway for the kids, instead of dragging out all the kitchen chairs. I like this idea!
Calm-down & time-out bottles: Fill a bottle full of water. Add one bottle of glitter glue & ultra fine glitter. Send this bottle with your child to timeout - to watch it settle and calm him/her. Once the glitter has settled, time-out is up!
