Ginger Snap Crafts: ticket chores {a fun way to get the chores done}

ticket chores {a fun way to get the chores done}

I showed you our chore sticks last year about this time.
The kiddos are getting pretty good at doing their personal chores~
making their bed, cleaning their rooms & picking up after themselves.
Buuut this summer with all the kiddos home I needed a little help getting the
big chores done each day…dishes, bathrooms, picking up the living room, etc.
So I came up with this fun idea….ticket chores!  Here’s how it works.

ticket punches die from Lifestyle Crafts

To make my tickets I used these ticket punches dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
I cut them out using my Epic Six.  You can find the tutorial {here}.
{You could also buy tickets at Walmart or Target or make your own.}

After I cut out all our tickets I put them in our big ticket jar.

Then I made a list of our {ticket chores}. 
Each chore is worth a certain number of tickets.
When they do a chore from the list they earn that many tickets.

Each kiddo has their own smaller jar to keep their tickets in as they earn them.

Once a month we have a {ticket store}~
{which is basically a bunch a stuff from the $1 spot at Walmart & Target!}
Each item is priced with how many tickets it is worth. 
So each kid takes a turn “spending” their tickets.

My kids LOVE this, & I love the extra help getting the chores done! Smile

  1. I have been making my kids do chores for a while, and just taking them to the dollar store on the weekend to get something for them. But, I think this is totally so much better! Maybe they will be brave and start expanding their chore list if they see they will get "more" for the harder jobs! Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. My sister just started doing this, and I heard from her that it's working really well. I might have to try this out for my little one.

  6. This is such a fabulous idea. I am needing to be more diligent about sticking with an idea for the few chores they have been introduced to. They're still young but I really want to have more follow through. This is a fun way to do it.
