Yes, I am one of those mothers that jam pack their children's schedules. I do this for routine, routine, routine. My children have been used to this since birth and know no other way. I run, run & run from sun up to sun down. If my children are idle, silliness ensues!
We have a splash park within walking distance, this is reward based, if they are good, we can go.
A weekly treat is always given as well, the movies, minature golfing, out for ice cream. But this is also reward based! Plus, I bake like a mad woman, always with the children. Cupcakes, cookies, cakes, dipped pretzels and marshmellows, anything and everything that is fun!
