Reward Chart ideas? Help!!

I have 3 children all under the age of 6. I know from the past, that usually by Feb, the kids have had it with being inside. We have done many projects and have done things to keep busy, but the attitudes have been terrible. They have been bickering, arguing over EVERYTHING and Nothing, and have been really pushing eachother's buttons. I am looking for a visual sticker reward idea or something like that so that they can see what progress they are maiking. I don't want to make it too negative but I feel like I need to make them realize when the do something wrong that something is taken son likes computers as does my daughter. Turning them off doesn't always work. SO, I would like them to do other things to work towards doing what they like to do. Does this make sense???

Any ideas would be GREATLY APPRECEIATED!!

Here are 2 reward systems with different ways of "earning" rewards.

This second one is a reward chart that can be printed out in different themes.

Hi musicmom, have a look at these and see if they suit you any, I used the space one with my 3yr old last year and as he needs visual things it was good for him.

Good luck!

You could give each one a green sheet of paper and use different flower stickers to make a flower garden poster. The one who earns the most flowers could pick, and help make if needed, the family's dessert for dinner on Friday night. Or gets to pick a favorite activity, game to play or pick a movie for Family night.

You could give them stickers for not fighting with each other that day.
Doing set chores that are age appropate, one for each chore they do.

Then take away a sticker for their bad behavior.

My 2 DD's use stickers to help potty train their 2 year olds.

Hope this gives you an idea.

I am hoping to start something like this through the holidays, this thread is very good.
Thank you for the ideas.

Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you're going when your lights are dim.
