Motivation Creation February 1, 2010

Posted by hollyspinner in Craft, Life, Paper.

I heard somewhere that it takes 30 days to form a habit.

Lately getting up and getting going in the morning has been difficult (to say the least).  So I have come up with 4 things that the daughter can do the night before to make mornings easier.  I made a list, but not just a list, a list with a countdown calendar on it. When the daughter completes her tasks she will get to put a star sticker over the number.  Since we are starting on Feb 1 the numbers correspond with the date (well until the end).  If she successfully completes all 30 days she gets a DVD or video game of her choice (within a certain price range).

While I was thinking about this little project I happened upon Gingersnap Creations a fabulous little blog about stamping and papercraft.  She has regular challenges with prizes no less.  This project is for challenge GC40, Random Redhead Challenge #40 NUMBERS. So without further ado here is my incentive chart/list/calendar.

The nitty gritty:

I used a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper over a heavy duty piece of cardboard (recycled packing material).

The ribbon is stapled to the cardboard.

The list numbers 1 – 4 are from recycled flashcards.
I used the computer to print the words.

The stars are hand drawn with gold and silver pens.

The numbers are stamped with gold pigment.

What a great project!!! I get so tired of telling my kids five times every day what they should be doing as part of their routine…. I should make one of these and just point, LOL!! Wonderful project for the numbers challenge!
