Warm Fuzzy Jar {With Printables}

Although I am sharing an incentive program that I use at church, this is an incentive program that you could easily adapt to your own family, play group, or classroom.

*******************

In my church, I serve in the Primary working with children ages 1-11.  We have over 100 children in Primary, so naturally working on reverence at church is an ongoing battle!  Last Sunday, we instigated a new reverence program that we *hope* really works! We introduced some new guidelines and routines, along with sharing some reverence stories and games.    Last week was the best week ever in our Primary, so cross your fingers that these improvements really last!

My part in all of this was the "fun" part!  I introduced the "Warm Fuzzy" Jar!  (In case you were wondering, the "R" is for reverence!)

Technically, the warm fuzzies are pompoms.  (Yes, I do organize my pompoms by color!)  But they represent so much more than a fuzzy pompom...

The Warm Fuzzy Incentive Program

The idea is that we begin with an EMPTY jar.  Each Sunday, all of the leaders (and anyone else who wishes to participate!) look for a child who is demonstrating reverences.  During the week, we send them a "Warm Fuzzy" postcard congratulating them on their good behavior.  (We keep a list, making sure everyone gets a turn with this special reward.)  The following Sunday during Announcements, we ask for any children who received postcards to add "Warm Fuzzies" to the jar.  They each add 1 pompom to the jar.  When the jar is full of Warm Fuzzies, we are planning to host a popsicile party!
