Chore Coins are a creative and fun way for parents to encourage their kids to complete daily tasks. Each 1.5” wooden disk is laser engraved with specific chores, such as "Do Your Homework," "Brush Your Teeth," and "Feed the Dog." These coins serve as a tangible and engaging reward system, making it easier for parents to motivate their children to develop good habits and take responsibility for their tasks.
