scratch-off tickets

You know those silver scratch-off tickets that you rub with the side of a penny to reveal your prize? I've always loved those things. I knew my kids would, too. I wanted to come up with a fun way to reward them for things, and I knew this would be just the ticket. I made some tickets to give out to them whenever they go the extra mile at home or as payment for doing chores. I followed this tutorial on how to make a scratch ticket.

You could put anything under the silver stuff. A prize, a dollar amount, or a fun activity, like going to a movie or staying up 1/2 hour later. We think the rewards will go a lot farther with a fun presentation like this. Check out the tutorial from Art Mind!

I love it! Can't wait to make some! But where did you find the 'sticky back plastic'?

Great idea, thanks for sharing! I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago as I googled how to make a two-sided ruffle (the skirt you made for your daughter is adorable!). You have a wonderful and inspiring blog!

Best wishes,
Tammy

This would be an AWESOME thing for a classroom too! I used to teach elementary school (before the budget cuts, ha!) and would have loved this for my classroom!
