Potty Chart

I stayed up late last night to make a Potty Chart for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I made it on a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock so I can add it to her scrapbook later. To make a long story short, she was basically potty trained way back in July but decided to change her mind and revert back to using diapers instead. It has been driving me crazy, so I decided to take a new approach on the issue.

The 8x8 grid is on vellum so that stickers will easily be able to go on and off. The stamped images (from Unity's Mix Up Of Cuteness and Whimsical Birthday) are incentives for her to reach her goal of staying dry. The big pay off is the whale stamp, which represents a trip to the indoor swimming pool. She has been dying to go swimming ever since we went a few months ago , so I'm hoping that this chart will payoff. So far today, she has 3 stickers, and a dry pull-up!

Here is the chart hanging on the fridge with her cat stickers ready to go right next to it!

Oh how cute is that???
I remember making one for my boy (the girls didn't need it, but HE sure did!), but it didn't look REMOTELY as nice as yours! Think construction paper and black permanent marker.
