Tree of hearts reward chart

Reward charts are a great tool to get the whole family working together towards a common goal. With each good turn, a member of the family sticks an item onto the reward chart. When it’s full, it’s time for a treat!

Our Parenting Consultant and Maternity Nurse, Lorna Clark, recently advised us on the effectiveness of using a reward chart to monitor your child’s behaviour and to encourage positive change when bad behaviour is displayed. We’ve found a beautiful tree of hearts reward chart for the whole family on Putti Prapancha. Here’s how to make it.

What you will need:

  • One or two coloured magazines you wish to recycle
  • A sheet of white cardboard or white paper to mount your tree
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick


  1. RewardChartsAsk your little ones to help you look through your magazines and find any pink, red and green pages.
  2. When you’ve found a green page big enough to trace round your child’s arm and hand, pull it out of the magazine and cut round your tracing.
  3. Cut out heart shapes from all of the red and pink pages to create about 10-15 hearts. These will be the reward counters.
  4. Using the glue stick, glue the tracing of your child’s arm onto the cardboard or paper, this will become the trunk of the tree.
  5. For doing so well with helping, why not reward your children by allowing them to Reward Chartsstick on the very first heart to the tree.
  6. For any good turn in the house, let the family member stick a heart to the tree. Make a fuss of how proud you are and get the whole family involved in the praise giving.
  7. When all of the hearts are gone and the tree has blossomed beautifully, it’s time for a treat! How about a day trip out to the zoo?
