DIY cardboard reward jar

Reward jars for positive job tasks and a little extra jar is for a similar system that their school uses which is “caught you being great” points.
Where you see positive behaviours & actions without bring asked.

We use a currency prize or reward for a certain amount of stickers for each child’s wants & needs to suit them.

We also upcycled some cardboard and the stickers were such a bargain from @kmartaus for $3.25.
