Something like this.
Since the above is not currently an option, we opted to create our own. Off to Target we went, and returned with a plain glass jar. To invest her in it, we got out the paints and stickers, and in no time at all, The Potty Jar became a reality.
Easily rivals some dusty gold box, and won't melt your face off.
No one's prouder of The Potty Jar than Sabrina, who is fond of telling people "Look, I painta' dis Potty Jar," whenever you enter the bathroom. We filled the Jar with the toddler world's gold standard of healthy snacks, Swirly Fruit Roll Ups. If you haven't seen them, picture taking six colors of fluorescent Play-Dough, mixing them, adding a metric ton of sugar, and then rolling it all flat with a rolling pin. The resultant "Potty Prize" is relished by toddlers and dentists everywhere. Now all we had to do is promise a Potty Prize after each successful whizzing, and potty training's a snap. Not so fast...
While Sabrina loves getting a potty prize for going potty she's still not committed, and some unexpected ground rules have appeared in our little game of potty cat and mouse. For example, if there are more delicious treats to be had elsewhere, who cares about potty prizes or even going potty at all. So home made Christmas cookies are like potty training kryptonite. We also quickly realized that Fruit Roll Ups are not what you want to feed a 2 1/2 year old right before bed. On more than one occasion we've had to scramble to substitute out a less sugary treat.
Like this unsweetened cat food.
There's also the dreaded sit and wait. As in, gee I'd love a Potty Prize, but I don't have to pee. Let's see how long they'll let me sit here until I do something. So we've had 30 minute waits. In the end it pays off, but sheesh! I haven't spent that much time in the bathroom since I was a teenager.
All in all we're making some progress. When it comes to potty training, eventually everything comes out OK.
