I'm always looking for good ideas to make daily practicing more fun. Yesterday a friend gave each of my girls an advent calendar and suggested using it for practice.
YES!! My girls will practice for chocolate (I will too).
Starting December 1st, the girls will get to open their flap and eat the yummy chocolate inside after completing a good practice session. We don't normally practice on the weekends, but I've already decided they will have to play at least one piece if they want the chocolate for that day. If they miss a day of practice, they can make it up another day by practicing twice and getting the reward.
