How’s potty training going in your home? I don’t want to talk about it. But I DO want to show you this pretty little potty chart that Clare and I made. We have been enjoying lots of board games lately so we applied that premise to the chart. A path with spaces to be filled with stickers as you earn your way to cool prizes. The prizes can be drawn in as you go to renew excitement. I can’t guarantee that this chart will work (I’m NO expert on potty training) but I can guarantee that it will be pretty to look at.
What we did:
Draw a long squiggly line in pencil, then thicken the line by adding a line about an inch out on either side. Draw in your spaces.
Collect an assortment of pretty paper scraps. I used all of my brochures from Quilt Market. Can you spot the Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner and Cloud 9? Then we added some shapes punched out of scrapbooking paper, and some pages of an anthro catalog.
Start cutting and gluing!
(yes, that is a wig)
You’re done when you fill up your background! You may find yourself enjoying the cutting and pasting long after the kids have moved on.
Draw in your first prize! Um, that BFA is sure coming in handy.
Kindof makes you want a chart of your own, doesn’t it? For like, doing the pans before you go to bed or drinking 8 glasses of water a day?
The enthusiasm is palatable.
