Reward your kids who do their chores by letting them pick out their favorite Disney-Pixar Cars toys at Walmart and a Cars 3 Play Date!
What kid likes to do chores? My kids certainly do not. I definitively do not like chores either.
However, if someone were to offer me a lunch at my favorite restaurant or a massage to clean my room I would absolutely get my chores done!
That concept of rewarding good behavior is exactly what I have done with my 6-year-old son Matthew this summer.
Matty loves his toys and Matty loves to make a mess of his toys. I suppose that’s true of all kids his age.
However, I’m trying to also teach Matty the value of cleaning up, living in a home that isn’t messy and cluttered all the time, and being rewarded for good choices.
There are a lot of ways to keep track of your kids chores.
I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel by creating a new chart, however the internet is already full of some really great charts and trackers.
This website has some great ideas.
For Matty’s reward, he wanted to invite our new neighbor boys over for a Cars 3 Play Date!
I called my neighbor Chelsea and we set a date for her two boys Grayson and Cohen to come over one morning.
Mattel supplied us with so many great Cars toys from Walmart that Matty wanted to share them with his friends.
Each boy got to pick their favorite Cars toys to play with and keep.
The boy had so much fun shooting the cars out of the launcher!
Cohen, the little guy, carried around Lightening Mcqueen like the car was his best friend. So cute!
The incentive for new Cars toys from Walmart has really encouraged and excited Matty to get his chores done.
Of course, there are days where I have to ask him over and over to pick up his toys… but on a whole, the reward system really worked!
I also made jumbo blueberry muffins for the kids to snack on. Grayson and Cohen weren’t fans, but Matty and Chelsea loved them! Get my bluebery muffin recipe here.
So if you’re looking for a way to reward your kids for good behavior, make a chore chart and then head to Walmart to let your kids pick out some super fun Cars toys!
