Kid’s Reward System That Works
At last, a kid’s reward system that works! If you are a parent… don’t miss this Claw Machine reward system! This is the best reward idea for kids since bribing them with Justin Beiber tickets. LOL no but seriously… this Claw Machine is AMAZING and I’m going to tell you why!
Are you having trouble trying to motivate your kid to listen to you? This mama has a few tricks up her sleeve. I’m going to teach you one of my favorite ways to get my kid to listen right now, today!
Okay Mama, do you see this Claw Machine right here?! ← This is the exact one that I use.
Why Kid’s Need Praises
Kids need praises! People in general need praises. I mean think about it. You’re at work and you just finished 25 calls, filed 300 forms, and wrote 12 emails. Your boss walks in the door and tells you to get him a cup of coffee. Not hi, not a good job, nothing. You think to yourself where is the motivation?! What makes me want to stay at this job? Certainly not your boss.
It’s the same thing with a child. They will work really hard trying to complete their chores or do something right but if they don’t get praised for it, why continue to do it. Sometimes in life, you just need a little motivation in the right direction.
Now let’s try this scenario again but this time a little different. This time you’re at work and after you have completed your tasks, your boss walks in and says, “Jill, WOW! Nice Job! I can’t believe you filed all 300 forms in 3 hours. I also got your email about Thursday. Sure, you can help Jane in the finance department. If you have time will you please get me a cup of coffee. I have a lot of work to finish. Thanks!”
Do you see the difference? Can you imagine how you’d feel after that? You would feel pretty darn good and that your hard work is being recognized. Plus you might not mind grabbing that cup of coffee for him after all.
How To Motivate Your Child
It’s the same thing with a child. Getting praised for putting their plate in the sink and rinsing off the spaghetti sauce without being asked. That deserves a good job. I’m not saying every day if it’s a normal regular routine but having the little things be recognized like that will surely make a difference.
Now imagine being rewarded with this ultimate Claw Machine. Not just any claw machine though. I call it the Mom Machine at my house because my kids LOVE getting the chance to pick something out of it.

Tips and Advice for the Kid’s Reward System
There are two ways that I choose to use this reward system. The first is a sticker chart reward system. My children will have to earn 10 stickers in order to get the claw machine. The second is at certain times if they do something outstanding they will get to pick straight out of the claw machine. Let me tell you something this thing works like a charm. It really brighten’s their spirits and it is so fun for them.
It’s fun for me too because I love seeing their faces’ when they open an Easter egg that has a note in it that reads… You get to pick out Mommy and Daddy’s pajamas for the night. Not only is this FREE but my kids have a hay day with this.
They’ll pick out mommy’s PJs for Daddy and vice versa. Luckily, my husband’s on board with the crazy stuff I put inside the eggs because he has been known to wear a pink pair of pants and a flowery tank top to bed before, hehe. But Shhh, we better keep that a secret though, LOL. 😛
The Conclusion of the Kid’s Reward System That Works
