The use of reward charts as a tool for potty training your child is a no-brainer. It simply works so effectively that virtually all parents who have used it before will recommend doing so. Much like how you’re often graded in pre-school or primary school for your grades, these will keep your child motivated to perform well if he or she can often track their progress on this simple chart.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you owe it to yourself to make the process a whole lot easier by investing a few bucks in one of these. Below, we’ll be looking at some of the best looking and most interesting sticker charts that will keep your kid very excited to keep up with his potty training sessions.
There are 2 versions of this. One’s specially made for boys while the other’s made for girls. The differences aren’t too major and mostly revolve around the differences in the images and colors being used on the stickers. With up to 126 different stickers, that’s easily more than enough to catch the attention of your kid. Most of the stickers will consist of relevant images that are related to potty use such as tissue paper, soaps, hands being washed, the different types of potty seats as well as motivational praises like “I did it!”.
The chart upon which the stickers will be pasted can be hung up on a wall just like how you’d hang a calendar. You’re free to award your child with whichever stickers you like within the package but there are several recommendations included within it that will help you optimize the process. Currently, it has 84 Amazon reviews and scores 4.3 out of 5 stars. This is the choice we found most interesting thus far after trying out 3 different sticker charts so we’d recommend getting this for your child. We bought 1 chart for our baby boy of 2 years old and another for our 3 year old girl. We put up these 2 right outside the bathroom so that they can compete with each other on how well they’re both doing. A little competition doesn’t hurt! Plus, it only costs $7 each which is pretty reasonable.
This sticker chart has an interesting feature to it because it doesn’t mix and mash random stickers with random images on them. It comes with 76 stickers. What the chart does is line up 5 different columns on which stickers can be pasted. Each column represents a “duty” that has to be completed before a sticker is rewarded. For instance, the columns are categorized into sitting on the potty, actually using the potty, flushing the toilet and washing hands. This way, if your child misses any of the steps, he or she wouldn’t be ‘eligible’, so to speak, for a certain sticker of the relevant column. We tried this out on our girl and she will attempt to earn every single sticker for those columns because to her, it’s just like a game that she wants to finish. If she didn’t wash her hands, for example, we’d say that she didn’t earn the last sticker and she’d immediately rush off to clean them. It’s truly an interesting notion that has proved to be effective, at least for us.
Ratings-wise, it isn’t too fantastic and only scores 3.9 out of 5 stars from 19 user reviews. This is probably because the stickers are weak and will occasionally fall off the chart. You’d be better off drawing up your own chart and getting your own stickers if you like this idea.
This chart is really straightforward but the stickers aren’t varied at all. Instead, all of them are in the shape of stars and share the same yellow color. If you like to keep things simple, this will do well but we could tell that our kids got pretty bored of it after just a few days because there’s nothing new here. It has a 4.1/5 rating and only 14 customer reviews. Plus, it’s priced at a super high $15 (compared to the previous 2 charts which cost only $7 each).
