Free Potty Chart Printable

Whilst away on vacation I decided to try potty training my supremely stubborn 2 year old.  He is a very black and white child.  He will either do something or he won't.  There is no bribing, distracting, pleading with him to do something.  He just knows what he wants and likes!  It is nice in some ways and... a little frustrating in others.  He has his own style for everything.

Anyways...  My daughter is almost 8 and has a wonderful tinkling at night issue that I wanted to take care of before working with him.  (YEAH for finally finding her help with that!)  So while at Grandma's house and lounging about I decided to do the whole Potty Party and let him drink whatever and use the potty... apparently WHEREVER!  Yeah...  he was not a fan.  No matter that he got candy every stinking time.  No matter that he could.  By lunch time he would sit on the potty, scream and cry, say that his "bum not working"!  Then I would get him off, he would walk into the hall and proceed to pee on the lovely carpet!   I hate potty training.  I know "they all say" to push through and keep going, but...  I know this kid.  He wasn't ready and I didn't want him to keep peeing on my mom's carpet and couch and porch and... you get the picture.

Fast forward one week.  We are home.  He is in his diaper and says, "Mommy!  I need to tinkle!  Take me potty!"  Then on the potty, "Can I wear underwear  please please please."  Yeah...  it's been 5 days. He has had a few accidents, but mostly uses the potty!  He has even been dry during nap and bedtime! It just had to be his idea.

Even so he still needs a little encouragement to remember to go while he is playing.  And... when he is playing he WANTS TO PLAY!  So I created the potty chart below!
 While we eat pretty healthy at our house but this little one seems to have learned the value of candy more than my other two!  The idea is if he sits on the potty and goes (which is every single time... I swear he stores it somewhere else...) he gets to put a sticker on the chart!  When he gets to the candy he can pick one from our stash!  At the end he gets the all coveted Ice Cream!  Very exciting!
I made a girl one too! Just cause I love you guys!

The fonts I used to crate the chart are super fun right?  I used Purple Boxes, Pea Jelene's Doodles and Pea Jillybean's Doodles all by KevinandAmanda.  I seriously love their site.

    1. Yeah... My son was very tempted to not go down the path and just place a sticker on the candy part. Silly goose!

  4. Cute! I will be using the little girl one for my 3 year old. We have been working on it, and she does good, when I remind her to go, but I am hoping to get her to want to take herself too. I think a potty chart will help a lot, and her and I decided her reward would be ice cream, so this is perfect for her! Thanks!
    Also, I was just curious, have you read "The Child whisperer", by Carol Tuttle ? Great book! I just thought I would mention it, because your little guy sounds like a type 4, with the whole black and white thinking. I have a daughter the same way! :)

  6. Thank you for a chart that is perfect for potty training. I love how there isn't a "candy" for each time we potty. My daughter is super excited to earn herself an ice cream!!!

  7. This chart worked great for my son. He has even mailed it with stickers to a few friends who were starting to potty train. I am back to get the girl edition for my daughter. Thanks for sharing for FREE :)

  8. This chart has worked wonders for my almost 3 year old! She is a pro at peeing on the potty and will even take off her diaper to do so. I love how the candy is spread out and how there is an even more special prize when she makes it to the end. I'm about to print our 3rd one! Now if you have advice for phasing it out lol :D

    1. Oh I wish!!! LOL Potty training has been my least favorite part of parenting so far. My kids are now 10, 8, and 5... So glad we don't have to potty train right now!

  12. This worked great for my son! I was trying to find something to get him to be more independent in going to the bathroom (rather than dragging me in every time....opening the toilet, getting the stool ready, helping with his pants) and it worked like a charm!!! Instead of ice cream we are off to Chuck E. Cheese today. I think he earned it! Printing off #2 today....thank you!
