Reward Board is getting things done


So I am finally getting this reward board going and it is going great!  So far I have put together the tasks and the stars.  The crazy thing is that I have yet to list (or make) the magnets for the board, but my kids are doing all of the items without even knowing the reward! 

I am still trying to word some of the tasks in a positive way.  The truth?  How do I put "Oh dear God stop whining"  or "If you say picklehead one more time I might jump off a bridge"

So I went for "Be a happy boy" for Jack and some other ones for Ella.  So good.  It is not finished yet, but we have been using it for about a week.

It was pretty easy to make, just a little time consuming.  I got a large dry erase magnet board from Sams Club (had a cork board on the back) for only $16.
Then I had some old printable magnet paper and I made the tasks and stars on it and cut them out.

The lines were put on by my DH (he is an architect and does much better with spacial tasks than I ever could).

I am not really feelin the stars, so we might go to the store and see it they have better magnets.
