Spectacular Summer Challenge


Well, this summer I am determined to make it more productive, fun and watch less TV.  I found this idea on Pinterest - look for the Super Summer Challenge - and decided that we could tailor it to our needs and make a go of it!  We already had our pallet board, so I just redid the bottom half to meet our needs. 

Goodies for the girls Spectacular Summer Challenge. Missing study guides for the Bible Bee Study we sign up to do this yr, plus their little Sewing machines that Grammy is gonna teach them to sew on. And we will make a trip to get library cards tomorrow!


Carli is a very visual kid. She wants to know is going on, when, where and how...so she requested her own calendar.


Revamped our board! Top jars have our summer goals/rewards (which include iJump, Splash Kingdom, Skating Rink and trip to craft store), jobs/bored jar (which Carli wrote all the jobs on) and "Gold coins."  Each Gold Coin equals $0.25.  The girls earn them by doing activities listed on the board, completing their daily chores and as we see fit to award them.  They can also lose coins when they are disrespectful or no minding.


Each girl got summer coupons (date nights, sleepovers, etc) for one time use, a list of mental, spiritual, physical and helpful activities with Gold coin values, daily chore check list and summer rules. For ever 100 Gold coins earned, they get to choose one reward.


The girls are pretty excited about earning their rewards.  Carli is more excited about the chart and process than Ava but that's their personalities at play there.  I don't really expect them to do every single coin earning activity or fill up their chore chart with stickers each week.  Rather, I expect them to learn they have to earn their rewards by accomplishing tasks instead of the reward simply being given to them.  So, here we go...
