Christmas movies are fun, Christmas baking is fun, Christmas caroling is fun, but what's the most fun of all? Christmas science! Well at least it is for us around here whether it's making a new slime recipe, trying a glittering eruption, or building a holly jolly catapult! I love science and STEM for the holidays, and you can too. Print out our free Christmas science cards to add extra merriment to your holiday season.
"Technology Tickets". Each Sunday give the kids 10 tickets. Each ticket = 30 minutes of t.v., game system, computer, etc. Tickets can be used consecutively, but when they are out they are out for the week. Parents still reserve the right to say "no" even if they have a ticket. (totally love this idea. great way to regulate screen time). Great way for grown ups to not waste evenings away too...
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! You do not get paid for chores because it's an expected part of being a family. Allowance is teaching children how to manage money. I have started this with the kids, the chore list doesn't get money but the commission chart does! There are different chores on each. AND she incorporates tithing and savings! Brilliant!
