Personalised Rewards Charts Review

I'm sure there are lots of parents out there like me that struggle with their child's behaviour sometimes, I don't think you can escape a paddy or two somewhere down the line.

My trouble child seems to be my third, Gracie. Don't get me wrong, majority of the time she is well behaved but if anything having two older sisters has made her lazy at times, especially when it comes to learning things.

I have struggled for a while now to cooperate and learn her colours and shapes properly so when I was asked by to review their review charts I was quite happy to accept!!

This company offer personalised reward charts that are A4 sized and plastic coated. With a range of themes to choose from, you can get one that will suit your child, engaging them from the very beginning, you can even add your own photo. They offer a range of themes such as potty training, brushing teeth, or a general task chart, you can also pick one which is blank, allowing you to choose what the reward chart is to be used for.

I chose a butterfly design for Gracie as this is her favourite thing at the moment and asked for it to be blank. 

The review charts come with stickers and a marker pen which you can wipe clean, allowing you to use the chart over and over again.

I decided that I was going to use the reward chart to encourage Gracie to learn her colours first. We discussed what the reward chart was for and agreed that each day that she got a colour right she could choose whether she wanted to put a tick on the chart of a star sticker. As you can see on the chart there is a big box at the bottom saying "my extra special reward is". Gracie wanted a chocolate bar as her reward, so we wrote that in the box.

We placed the reward chart on the fridge where Gracie could reach and I am really pleased to say that with each day that went by her knowledge of colours improved. It was easy for her to put the stickers on, or draw in the squares with the marker pen and it didn't get in the way of anything.

She has now completed the chart once and knows all of her colours, we are moving on to learning her shapes.

The price of an A4 chart is £3.00, a bargain in my eyes. You can pay £3.00 extra to have it made into an A3 chart if you wish, still not expensive for how long it can be used for. You can also buy different stickers starting at £0.75 a pack, a great idea as it stops your little one getting bored if the process.

I would definitely recommend these charts to anyone.
