Painting the treasure box!

Treasure box you say...? Yes, let me explain. My sweet girls are growing up and learning how not to be sweet all the time! We have a new plan to help with that (cross my fingers). The girls earn marbles by doing chores, good deeds, talking nice, helping each other, and anything along those lines. Equally they can be taken out if needed for punishment. Now when they get enough marbles (10,25,35,) They can use them to buy things from the treasure box! If they save up then they get a big reward like ice cream with dad, mini golfing, or a movie. They also have the option of combining their marbles so the whole fam can go do something fun together! I am hoping this will be a positive experience and teach them how to earn and save up for the big stuff!! :)

Love the treasure box! The tricky part for me is to actually remember that we have a treasure box, and then follow through with the giving and taking of the marbles! I try to be tough, but I think I am just a push over. I guess it's all about finding balance. Good luck!
