Kids’ stickers don’t have to be just for coloring and paper projects. Reward charts for kids can be a valuable learning tool and an easy way to praise your children for achievements, good behavior and more.
One easy way to use stickers for kids as a reward for your children is with a sticker reward chart. Reward charts for kids are becoming more and more popular because they can help:
- Encourage behavior you want
- Discourage inappropriate behavior
- Reward your child for a variety of achievements or new skills
A sticker reward chart can be especially helpful during potty training and other new skill training. Each time your child successfully uses the bathroom, they can place a sticker on the chart.
For younger children, earning stickers and placing them on their chart can be enough, but for those older, consider allowing them to trade their kid’s stickers in for a bigger reward. Many parents use a sticker chart to track progress towards a larger goal, like a new toy or a special day out.

How to Create a Sticker Reward Chart
The creation of a sticker reward chart is a great way to encourage creative playtime, too. Work together with your child to create their chart and they will feel more invested in it. Allow them to help decorate their chart and be as creative and unique as they want.
You can either create one out of poster board or cardstock and markers or you can download a printable version online like the one featured above. There is no right or wrong style, only what works best for your child’s unique needs.
A common type of reward chart for kids includes a grid that lists different activities such as weekly chores, and includes spaces for applying stickers.
Allow your child to pick out craft stickers for their reward chart, so they get excited about earning them. Make sure they pick out a set of stickers they’ll be excited and motivated to earn. Together, place the chart in a prominent place where the whole family can be involved in participating and noticing the progress.
