Local Rewards start at Home!
At home? Yes! Because YOU can offer your kids rewards. First, rewards for good grades can be money or they can be free. Of course, don’t feel like you need to pay for something they should be doing anyway. Still, a little motivation can help keep kids focused. So, get creative and talk to your kids about what would motivate them.
Here are some ideas:
- Report Card Party! Have a party and invite friends or family. In other words, bake a cake and play games.
- Kid’s Choice! My daughter looooveeeesss to go to the movies! So, a great reward for good grades for her would be movie night. Let your kids decide what they want to do and have fun together.
- Keep it Simple! Because going to the park is free and means together time! Finally, leave the smartphones and tablets at home! Unplug and spend some one-on-one time together. Remember, they don’t stay young very long!
- Check out a local museum together. You could all learn something new! And, you can get Free Museum Admission the first weekend of every month!
- Take a hike! Nothing says “great job!” like getting up off the couch and doing something monumental! Set a goal and pack a picnic lunch (or try our homemade trail mix recipe + 5 Healthy Ingredients to use!), then hit the trail together!
- Get Moving! Grab your bikes and see where they take you. Tell your kids about how you got around before you got your driver’s license. Whether it was by bicycle, skateboard or Rollerblades — they might not realize there was ever a younger you! ?
- Game Night! Grab some board games and spend quality time together, unplugged, as a family!
- Take in a FREE Event (check our Free Events Roundup)
- Your School may also participate locally in specific good-grade rewards programs
