Something Different Update

This morning I gave each girl 30 M & M's. Explained that today would be a quiet day and that they could pantomime, write or draw a picture for everything they wanted to say. Each time they forget I get an M & M from their stash. A hissy fit constitutes losing 10. At the end of the day they can have all of their M & M's before dinner. Taking bets on if any are left. ;-)

So far it has really cute and really quiet. The score: J has lost 4 M & M's and SK has lost 6. Oops 7 now. I might update more on twi tt er.

You could try it the other direction too, have them earn mms, one every 30 minutes or something like that, if they lose them all by noon for example.
Good luck, sounds like fun. Anything that involves candy works for me!
(Oh yeah, I mean the children. Its all about the children ahem).

I was wondering what the consequence to breaking the silence might be! Thanks! Here's to a quiet day for you. :D

I love all your things you do with your girls....I am thinking I need to try some of these things with my bio kids...I feel they act out a lot from a lack of structure.
