North Pole Nice Tokens Printables
Print off a page of our North Pole Nice Tokens and keep them on hand for when you or your family’s elf spot good behavior. This is an easy way to utilize positive reinforcement during the holiday months!
When the the holiday merriment cranks up a notch and the kids’ behavior seems to spiral in direct correlation with the countdown to Christmas, a little behavior management goes a long way. I’m not saying it’s a perfect solution and I’m certainly not saying that kids aren’t likely to bounce right off the walls during the months of November and December. I have experienced many holiday months with both kids over the last 10 years and not only do I totally get it, I’m also realistic.
So while I know for pretty much certain that no matter how many times Santa and coal are used as threats, those threats grow cold after you have yelled them for the 30th time.
My kids, the youngest in particular, always seem much more receptive to positive reinforcement than negative and though it’s hard, I really try to keep that in mind. Landon always runs a much better chance at straightening up when I catch him being good and build up his self esteem. Time and time again, this tactic works much better than time outs, etc.
This year I am going to try these North Pole Nice Tokens. They will arrive by way of our trust Elf on the Shelf, Oboe. Between the elf and Bob and I, I figure we can dole out these tokens whenever we catch good behavior and/or good choices.
You can go head and print as many pages as you’d like of these North Pole Nice Tokens. There are 12 tokens on a page. I printed mine out on regular printer paper but you could definitely use card stock if you’d like to make them a bit sturdier.
I figure this time of year, I need all the ideas I can get and I know the kids will get a kick out of these!
