Sleep Reward Charts

 

 

So I have three kids under six in my home, so sleep can be hard to come by, if you know what I mean. We tried everything to get a good routine, but the kids needed something visual. Insert the Good Night, Sleep Tight Reward Chart. I can’t believe how well it works! It has nine categories that may or may not apply to all families, but for us it was good. We don’t actually read before bed, but we do a prayer, so we just used that space for that and the kids knew where their sticker was supposed to go so it worked out well.

My two older kids (4, 5.5) are now going to bed for me a lot easier and stay in bed better. My son still comes into our room occasionally, but not as much as he had been and our daughter stays in bed until it’s time to get up better instead of getting up and playing instead. They love being able to place stickers on the chart and we have a special treat on weekends if they do well all five days on the chart. Many have said they wish it were a 7 day week, but we often have a different routine on weekends so it works well for our family. Even just a six day chart would be great. (“late night” Saturdays don’t have to go on there 😉 )

The pictures aren’t “high quality” so to speak, but they are colorful and get the message across, so for me it’s not a huge deal and the kids seem to like them. I like that the stars are used for the night time routine and then smileys are given for all the night accomplishments they make such as staying in bed all night or not calling out etc. While the stickers are reusable a couple of times, they aren’t completely reusable. But as far as stickers go, the fact they can be reused even a couple of times is better than only being able to use them once and then done. (they also offer replacement stickers-so it’s not a huge deal (or get some at the dollar store!)) Overall this was a great product and has really helped us get more sleep at night.

 

Product Description:

Sleep influences our entire family’s life and wellbeing. A good night’s sleep is important for every member of the family, it helps us to feel refreshed and full of energy. A night without enough sleep can leave us feeling exhausted and irritable impacting how we perform throughout the day.

For a parent, a restful evening and a good nights sleep can be determined by the sleep routine of their child. If there is no routine then it can make for a stressful family time. In addition to this, increasing evidence shows that sleep disruption is harmful to children’s learning, concentration and behavior. Therefore one of the most important things a parent/carer can do for their children is create a good bedtime routine. If this is something that hasn’t been instilled from a young age; then it can often prove quite a challenge!

Our Good Night, Sleep Tight reward chart provides a complete system to help parents and carers create that good, solid bedtime routine.

Our Good Night, Sleep Tight reward chart creates the perfect bedtime routine for children. It provides a step by step routine with tips and guidelines to help you give your child a healthy nights sleep.

Custom Stickers


stickeryou_57210

While I wasn’t able to get a good enough picture of my new personalized mailing labels, I can still definitely tell you about them and how easy StickerYou.com was to use. (and trust me-it was!)  You can choose from pre-made templates then go in and personalize them, or you can create your own labels and design your pages to fit your needs.

I decided to go with personalized mailing labels because we have never had any and those that they send in the mail to try and convince you to get an insurance policy or buy certain baby food for your babies have ALWAYS used the wrong name or changed the address just enough they can’t be used. ( I mean, they just started making my checks to the right name/address…) They came out beautifully. Mine had beautiful pink flowers on a blue background with our name and address to the side. I could choose whatever font I wanted and if I wanted to change backgroud color or design and the picture I could. I could even change the shape it came in, though I chose the basic rectangle label that typically is seen on mail.

You can make labels, stickers, jar labels, business labels-whatever you may want or need at StickerYou.com and the best part is each thing can be completely personalized to fit your event, business, or personality. Not one label or sticker will ever be the same when you add your own personal touch at StickerYou.com

Nail Cones-Simplify Nail Painting

20140523_122541

Have you ever painted your nails and found you had more nail polish on your hands than your nails? Ever needed to pull out the cue tips and nail polish remover and spend even more time fixing your nails than you did even painting them? I know I have. And it can be so frustrating, can’t it? Sometimes we just need to paint our nails and go-we don’t always have time to go back and fix those smudges.

20140523_122619

That is where Nail Cones come in. These super adorable little ice cream cones are actually stickers and they come in three sizes to fit any nail. They come in sets of  four sheets that add up to 60 nail cones. They are meant to cover the skin around the nail and ensure the perfect manicure, just as if you had gone to the salon. It takes the mess out of painting nails and saves time because you no longer will need to fix your nails.

20140523_122605

On top of being super adorable. Nail cones are extremely easy to use.  Just wash and dry your hands (so the stickers will stick well), apply the nail cones, polish your nails, then allow your nails to dry and remove the nail cones. My advice for applying the cones would be to do one hand at a time. This will ensure you are better able to grasp the brush.

The stickers go on easy and stay on well. You should really make sure your hands are very dry, including where the nail meets the finger because if you don’t, they won’t stay as well. The sizes make them super easy to use because the size choices are almost like “One size fits most” when it comes to fingers. I was even able to use the smallest size on my daughter and they worked great. The picture above is what they look like when you first apply them to be used.

Above you’ll see what they look like after the nail is painted. The reason these work so great is because they protect the surrounding finger and as long as you wait until the nail polish is dry before removing the cone, the nail polish doesn’t run or bleed. (Yeah-I made the mistake of lacking patience….) Once dry, just remove the nail cone and take in your perfect, salon quality nails.

I really loved the Nail cones sent to me to sample. They went on easy and really did a great job keeping the polish off my fingers. I was able to just paint my nails and go and with three kids-that’s important because there isn’t much time left to paint nails unless they surprise me and take a nap.

These are great for any woman who paints their nails but has a hard time keeping it neat. I know, because I am the WORST at it, especially when doing the right hand. (no matter how hard I try…)  Easy to use and affordable, Nail Cones are guaranteed to make painting your nails easier and more enjoyable.
