We LOVE them. I love them because they stay out on the counter so they are always there and I don't have to stop what I am doing to go dig stickers out or find where I placed the chart while I was "cleaning". I can also reward them for anything I see them doing whether it be saying something sweet, helping out, trying hard and not giving up, or obeying right away.

They were also super cheap to make. The whole project cost me less than $8 and took like maybe 10 minutes to throw together. I got the marbles (really more rock-like than actual marbles) at the Dollar Tree for $1 and then I got the glass containers at Hobby Lobby half off which made the little 2 $1 and the big one $1.49 and then I bought three little rolls of ribbon for $1 each. I also just wrote their names on with a dry-erase marker that I already had. So there is a long answer for a question you really didn't ask. Oh, and a special shout out to my friend Jennifer Smith because I saw these marble jars at her house.
