Pom Pom Jar (Reward System)

When I'm out with my fellow Moms, I often ask about different ideas to help me become a better parent. My friend suggested a reward system and said the Pom Pom Jar had worked for her. It's such a genius idea - it's a great way to discipline your little ones. Kids earn pom poms by being well-behaved and kind around the house or doing little chores. Those pom poms go into a jar and when the jar is full - they get a reward!

I have sweet treats for prizes and soon will start creating fun surprises for my little guys.

I wanted to create my own pom poms using some scrap yarn. (It's perfect use this project).
Wrap the yarn around a scrap piece of card stock. When you're making pom-poms volume is key. Remove the wrapped yarn from the card stock and prepare a 3" to 4" yarn and tie it around. Knot twice to secure the yarn. You don't want it too loose.
