Potty training may not be the most pleasant part of parenting, but with a little bit of motivation for our trainee, the process can certainly go much smoother. Here are a few fun and creative ways to reward your little one for a job well done.
Activity Popsicle Stick Jar- write a few fun activities on several Popsicle sticks and place them in a jar. Every time your child has a successful trip to the potty, allow them to pull a stick from the jar. Whichever stick they pull is the activity they get to enjoy as their reward. You can use any acitivities you think your child would enjoy such as baking cookies or going for a swim.
Marble Incentive Jar-allow your little one to place a marble in the jar every time they use the potty. Mark lines at different heights on the jar and write a specific reward next to each one. Once they hit a mark, they can receive that reward.
New Underwear- buy your trainee a few pair of new undies as motivation to continue to work towards becoming fully potty trained. This really worked well for my eldest daughter. She was potty trained at the age of 2 and it was mostly because she was in such a hurry to get in her “big girl pants.”
Potty Punch Cards- get or make a punch card and for each time your child uses the potty, punch their card. Once they reach a certain number of punches, they’ll get a special treat.
Reward Bag-put together a bag stuffed with fun treats and for each potty training goal your child reaches, allow them to select an item from the bag.
Sticker Chart- set potty training goals for your little one and create a chart. After each successful potty trip, allow them to place a sticker on the chart.
Whether you’ve been potty training for a while or you’re finally ready to start potty training, these incentives can definitely help you out a bit. What incentives have you tried when potty training? Did it work? Comment below. Happy Parenting!
