I'm a Great Helper Coupon Book
Paper, scissors, stapler, tape, glue, and items to decorate such as pens, crayons, glitter, rick-rack, ribbons, etc.
To help your child realize what a help they can be to us grown ups, make it fun by creating a 'coupon' book of things they can do or 'give' to us. Take blank white 8 1/2 x 11 paper or construction paper and fold in half. To create the coupon book, cut the paper along the fold and then staple the paper together along the short side. Then, come up with a list of things with your child that he or she can do to help you, such as feeding your pet, helping load the dishwasher, picking up their room, etc. Then, have them draw a picture that represents those helping tasks, one on each page. Once the booklet is complete tell them that whenever they want to help or give Mommy or Daddy a gift, they can give a helping coupon. They will really grow to enjoy giving their gift of help!
