I tried reward charts, treats, and downright begging when it came to potty training, and my daughter was having none of it. So when I heard about Pee-kaboo potty training stickers, created by a stay-at-home mother of two who lives in my own town (go New Jersey moms!) I was like, whoa.
Could this be the help that desperate potty training parents have been looking for?
The cool thing about these reusable stickers is that you can only see the cute designs — after they’re peed on.
Kind of like the plus sign on a pregnancy stick. Only with trains and butterflies and flowers.
Just stick one in a dry potty seat, and encourage your toddler to mark the spot. When the image appears, it rewards a job well-done. Rinse the seat with cold water and the image disappears again, ready to be reused for up to six weeks.
It’s that “now you see it, now you don’t” peek-a-boo game — get it? Pee-kaboo? — that’s the golden ticket to getting your kids to want to use the potty again and again.
Ha, golden ticket. Couldn’t resist.
