Radical Reward Charts!

Radical Reward Charts:
 Carrot or Stick
I loved reward charts! I started using them a few years back when our Jack first started to potty train, and they worked a treat. Since then I've tried to keep the reward charts going to to be honest the kids got a little bored of them and they started to lose their effectiveness until we'd all but given up on them... Starting not to sound like "love" after all?

Well it seems that all I needed was a change. A bit of glamour....

No more tatty bits of paper with stickers slapped on haphazardly (because that's what they had degenerated to). How about lovely, long, glossy, INTERESTING reward charts? How about a different design for each kid? How about sticking a picture of the kid on the chart to he can see himself climb to the top?

Oh Yeah! I'm in love again!

Ours came in the post this week. I'd sat down with my iPad with Jack & Tom and let them pick out their own chart. Jack - typically - went  for the Gruesome Graveyard, ("it has a skeleton!!!!") and Tom chose the 'Orrible Ocean ("because it has pink and fishes on it").

What I didn't tell them was that I had also sent in a picture of each of them to be turned into the markers (don't worry, they're safe to send your kids pics in to, and if you don't fancy that they can send you a different marker). They were so excited to get them in the post and almost exploded when they saw their pictures too.

And did I mention that they are MASSIVE! So much better than my A4 sheets of paper. These are like glossy posters. The kids are taking great care in planning which wall they are going to be attached to so they can show them off to every visitor we have!

We're going to start using them at the start of the holidays (Wednesday) so they can earn themselves some extra treats or pocket money to enjoy while they are off school & nursery. And I'm promising to stick to the rules (my bad in the past) so they're keeping tabs on me too!

I'll post again later on about how well they are working.

Disclaimer: I have been asked to write a review by Radical Reward Charts. They have given me two sample charts for free so that we may try them out for the purpose of the review. I am not being paid.  All opinions are my own (and those of my children)

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
