Compilation of Other Coin Chart Ideas

After MONTHS of saying I'm gunna post about others who have made the Behavioral Coin Chart, I've finally got a post together! Most of what I've gotten in emails from people are of their charts and some of how they changed it to make it work for their child! Everyone has GREAT ideas and I LOVE getting photos from everyone who has made a chart for their child!

Cari, a mother and fellow blogger, Reach for Star Berries, got in contact with me MONTHS after implementing the behavioral Coin Chart System with her 4 year old daughter. This is what pushed me to get this post out because up until now I only had pictures of charts and not too much feedback on how the charts have been working for the families over time! 
Here is what Cari wrote to me: "I found this back in June and posted on here that I would come back and post images of our chart. I'm featuring the chart and how I made it on my blog next week. We've been using it for about 5 months now and love it! I took your ideas and ran with them and have told all of my mommy friends about your idea. Thanks for sharing with us."  
Below are pictures of her chart and you can click HERE to read her post!

Here are a few more examples of what others have done! Even if you don't follow my Behavioral Coin Chart exactly, the basic idea of it is a wonderful system to implement with ALL children! I hope seeing what others have done will help you change it up and make a chart that works for you and your child!

Emily is a Nanny for a very lucky 3 year old girl....
She made a Hello Kitty Chart and wrote about the changes she made.
"I have made some changes:

1) I have listed daily activities she must complete (getting dressed, breakfast, brushing her hair, walking to school, etc.) and she can earn a sticker for completing these tasks well (i.e. not screaming for mom, no crying, no arguing). When she earns 5 stickers in EACH task, she earns an extra sticker towards her goal.

2) She earns 1 sticker (Hello Kitty, of course!) towards her goal every day that she keeps all 6 coins, same as your chart.

3) I've laminated the whole chart so we can peal off the stickers when she's completed it and I've used dry erase markers to write the daily activities so as she grows or the tasks become too easy we can change them. 
4) I've used Velcro to hold the coins on instead of pockets, I had some around and I couldn't be bothered with making pockets hahaha. "

Ali wrote,
"Thanks for posting this! My 4 year old was in desperate help! As is my sanity! This is my version! :-)" At the top of the chart she wrote out Rainbow Rules for Good Behavior.

Ashleigh writes how she made her chart for her daughter:

"Here's how ours works: If she has ALL 5 coins at the end of the day she gets a sticker in the box. 10 stickers = goal. She also gets however much money her coins equal each day (so if she has 2 coins left=20 cents, 5=50 cents, etc). She writes that amount each day (which she will count the following morning - before we "reset" them - so that we can take a coin away if she doesn't go to bed good) and gets paid at the end of the week. Her coins can be lost for bad behavior or gained back for good behavior. IF she loses ALL of them it's a loss of ALL privileges for the day. Getting all her chores done is equal to a coin as well. Also, if she loses them ALL then she can not gain them back for that day. She starts fresh every day. 


Med made her chart all dry erase for her 2 1/2 year old son! She blogged a little about it HERE and she also writes about how she made her chart HERE!

Katie has been using this chart with her daughter since October and she has also blogged about how it works for her YOUNG TODDLER, who is only 2 1/2 years old! Check out her post HERE!

"Thanks again for your advice, we're only on day 1 so we'll see how it goes, so far she loves her coins and doesn't want to give any of them back when she makes a "bad decision"! Ha ha, almost 3 and stubborn as a mule!  Her first goal is for her toenails to be painted pink "like mummy!" :)"

Lastly, I don't have a picture of the chart Dalia made for her daughter but I will leave you with what she wrote to me, 
"I just have to say THANK YOU!!! I was nearly at my wits end with my 5 year old daughter. I was really considering therapy for her behavior. I saw your behavior chart on Pinterest and gave it a try. I made almost an exact duplicate. Words cannot express the miraculous turn around in behavior! It is absolutely amazing. I actually overheard her say, "I'm not going to do that because I don't want to lose a coin." I was stunned. Pleasantly so. She earned her reward in 12 days and is such a pleasure to be around now. Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating an amazing behavior chart."


  1. Colleen, Thanks for featuring my coin chart and blog post. I loved sharing your ideas with all of my mommy friends. I'll have to make a "featured on RFTSB" button to share with you as a thank you.

    I can't believe how many beautiful charts were posted. I'd love to hear back from these families to see how the system has been working for them. Some of these stories were amazing, even if they didn't include a picture.

  3. I just found your chart on Pinterest today and plan on making one tonight with my 3 year old son's input on his character coins. I love that you shared other people's charts and their successes. We've been having a rough go around here since the switch to a toddler bed and need something motivating. He loves sticker charts so I think this will be a hit. Thanks for sharing!
