    Kids Rewards Bingo using Happy Planner Student Planner Pages

    My godson loves video games.  Loves them!  Maybe a little too much.  And I would love for him to stop playing them so much. I’ve tried to use the video games as a privilege for doing well in school and at home.  But he still tends to get too much screen time.  So I was trying to think of a way to reward him for doing good in school and at home, limiting the use of the video games. I was watching a YouTube video where someone was repurposing the planner pages of a Happy Planner Student Planner, and I thought I would be able to do the same and…

    DIY Party Game
