As you start a potty training program with your child, it can be difficult to track how they are doing with the number of accidents versus successful trips to the bathroom. However, a great potty training chart will help you to track this so you can focus on adapting your strategy as your child is ready. You can get our free printable potty training chart here and learn how to best use them to your advantage below.

How to Use Potty Charts

For potty training success, it is important to have a visual for you and your child and give a sense of achievement. Our Everyday Life notes that the use of a sticker chart is a “tried-and-true potty training method,” but you need to know how to use it.

Here are five tips to help your little one know both what the chart is and get excited to use it as part of your potty training kit.

  • Hang it- By seeing the chart constantly, it will remind your child to use their potty seat instead of going in their diaper or training pants. Since it’s a new concept for them, they will need many reminders to let you know when they need to go, and this chart is just one extra visual reminder.

  • Use stickers- Stickers or stamps are a great way for your child to see their potty training success. They can see the chart on the wall and get excited over how many stickers they have on there, especially when those stickers are of their favorite character.
  • Discuss- You will also need to explain to your kid what you are doing, and why they are getting the stickers. This will help get their eyes on the prize and want to toilet train to fill up the potty reward chart.
  • Constant reminders- Kids will also need your help to remind them to let you know when they have to go. Tell them “let mama know when you need to use the big boy potty” and point to the chart so they think about if they have to go or not.
  • Frequent use- You will want to make sure your child fills up their sticker chart with frequent trips to the bathroom. Keep them on a potty schedule with plenty of liquids on your potty training days so they get to put a lot of stickers up to build up the excitement.

Explaining the Chart for Kids

potty rewards
The most important part of using the chart for toilet training is knowing that your child understands it. This will get them excited and want to use their potty chair.

Follow these steps for telling your child about the chart:

  • Describe what the chart is for- When your child sees the Mickey Mouse potty chart on the wall, they just see their favorite character. Show them that the chart gets a sticker each time the potty is used so they understand how to earn the rewards.
  • Get them involved- Let them put up the sticker or stamp, or if they prefer, use crayons to mark off each box. This will get them excited to do it each time they have a successful trip to the bathroom.
  • Pick the right reward- Make sure you have a reward that the child will get excited about. Perhaps each time they keep their training pants dry with a successful trip to the big boy potty, they get a sticker. If they have a bowel movement, which is more intimidating on the toilet for kids, they get a sticker and an additional reward for extra incentive.

Choosing Rewards

The use of positive reinforcement instead of punishment will be much more effective for your little one when it is time to toilet train. However, you will need to choose the reward that works best for your family. Many parents on Baby Center gave their advice on different treats to reward with.

Here are some additional ways to pair rewards with the potty training sticker chart.

  • Each Square- If your child likes stickers, being able to put the sticker on their chart may be enough reward for them to begin with. If not, consider a very small reward, such as one M&M or a new crayon, for each square.
  • Each Row- If they just get the sticker for each square, think about giving a small treat each time they complete a row on the potty training reward chart. This will keep them interested and work toward having potty time success to complete the next row. If you want to keep it from being a physical item, try the happy jar idea from Parenting where they can pick one of their favorite activities to do instead of a toy.
  • The Sheet- Once they fill a sheet, let your child cash it in for a bigger reward. You can decide what is the best option for your child, but here are a variety of ideas:
    • A new toy
    • A trip to the park
    • Half hour of screen time
