Screen time tickets
May 14th, 2007
We printed out a bunch of these and started using them this week. Blue for the boy and pink for the girl. So far they’ve taken to them and they’ve already realized they can pool their resources to make them last longer. We’ll see how things go. I’m anticipating they’ll have to start rationing around Thursday. We’d been meaning to do something like this for a while and the recent Parenthacks post got me going.
If you’d like some, these come in 30 and 60 minute denominations and print 10 to a sheet on 8.5×11 paper. You can download tickets in blue, green, pink, silver, and black. If you have more kids than that, you can print the black ones on colored paper. You’ll also need a place to keep unused tickets (we clipped ours to the refrigerator) and a container for redeemed tickets.
