Team Trager


My kids are really into “teamwork” lately, which is really awesome. I wanted to reinforce this awesomeness and display some family rules . Some of these ideas are borrowed, some are common sense and some are things we say just in our family. (Click on the picture to make it bigger and readable)

I used a big frame that a friend gave me before moving out west. Thanks Anette! I love when people pass things along to me…

I bought a pack of coordinating papers that I liked at Michael’s for $7.99 and started cutting them up. This project could have used a little more math skills, but I did the best I could with 2 little people helping me cut up the papers.

I put it at the bottom of the stairs, and a different one catches my eye every time I pass by. Today, after Kaylee had 5 time outs for hitting, I showed her the one that says “Hands are for hugging, not for hitting”.

What would your Family Team frame say?

Great job!!! I've been wanting to do something like this in our home for a while now--you might have just inspired me to actually do it! We've had a family "mission statement" just written on a dry erase board but its been there for several years now...and its a good reminder of the environment I want to help maintain in our home - "Our family is peaceful, healthy, loving and fun" .

Now I just need the rules necessary to make all that happen!!!

Your welcome! It took me a few minutes to figure out what was initially in the frame...aha! A flower I think, that used to hang above my couch. Anyway, what a great idea, I love it!
