Incentive Jar Directions:

Paint the bottom of your jar white on the outside except for the bottom area and the threads (where the top twists on). I had to do 3 coats to sufficiently cover my jar. You may want more depending on how thickly coated you want the paint on your jar. Let it dry overnight so it thoroughly sets.

Using your Sharpie marker, write “ticket jar”. Then evenly space 4 black dots and connect them. The two outer black dots were done last. You can either collect tickets IN the jar as an incentive OR you can pre-write prizes and ideas on the tickets and allow kids to blindly choose a ticket from the jar when it is earned.
