But one thing she really isn't very good at is tidying up. Usually when I have asked Lily to tidy up, its either a "i'm tired" or a blatant no, or she would make it look like she is when in reality I was the one doing it all.
Also Lily has never been very good at playing with a toy, and then putting it away after she has finished playing with it, leaving my home looking like a bomb has hit it.
It was only after Lily kept going on about being on the "Top Star" at nursery did I think to myself, why not make a chart for tidying up.
I simply use blue tack to move Lily up and down the stars.
But did this work??
As soon as I tell her that, she is well on with the tidying and happy to put things away. She is always pleased when she see's herself moving closer to the top star.
This idea doesn't just have to be for tidying up and can be perfect as a behaviour chart or a potty training chart.
Would you use a chart idea like this?
