"Be Good" Christmas Reward Jar Printable

With Christmas quickly approaching, your kids are bound to be excited. Anyone dealing with a few cases of the "Gimmies?" at home? (I love that Berenstein Bears book!) I'll admit it, I'm bribing my daughter using some lyrics from one of our favorite Christmas songs! 

"He knows if you've been bad or good, 
so be good for goodness' sake!"


She's going to get a little pom-pom in her jar every time I catch her "being good" 
- sharing, saying please and thank you, being obedient...

Click through for the free printable!


Supplies:

  • "Be Good" Printable labels (found here)
  • jar or container
  • pom-poms or something else to fill up the jar (these cute sparklies are from Target's $1 spot.)


 Cut out the label you want and wrap around your container. I just taped mine in the back.


 Explain the "rules" and the reward to your kid and then fill those cute little jars up! 
My daughter gets to open a new Christmas movie when her jar is full. Kids could also work towards a special Christmas activity or night out with Mom or Dad.


You can use any size of jar and the printable includes 3 different colors if you want each a different jar for each child!


 Hope you (and your kids) survive the next 25 days!!

P.S. We are loving all the projects coming in for our 12 Days of Christmas Series! We'll be adding in some regular posts over the next week, too.

  1. What a great idea! My husband and I don't have any kids yet, but I am going to have to remember this. And I love the reward idea -- you can buy fun Christmas movies so inexpensive now at Target. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  3. So cute! I can't wait to make my jar. I clicked the link to download and it took me to a google page that said, "Google Error 500. That’s an error. There was an error. Please try again later. That’s all we know." Any thoughts?

  7. I am so happy about these jars. We so often see the negatives in our kids& others. What an encouragement to be looking for the positive & rewarding our kiddos for kindness, goodness, self-control & other admirable character qualities.
