Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. If you don’t see your question listed, please write us an email.
Can Vlinder be used for younger children?
Every child is different. Some two year olds will be old enough to play and some 15 year olds will be young enough to play. The rules of the game are guidelines.
Why does my child earn their stamp if they didn't complete their task?
If your kiddo is unable to complete a task due to a situation out of his/her control then they are not penalized. At the beginning of the day, or whenever possible you should highlight tasks that your child is not expected to complete. These highlighted tasks count towards their total for the day, along with their other stamped tasks. This allows the kiddos the chance to still earn reward cards even if they weren’t expected to complete all 12 or 18 tasks that day.
What are some examples for some additional Reward Cards?
First you need to ask yourself which reward bin you want to put the reward in. Different increments of money is easy. I find the best way to find out what reward will work for your child is to discuss what will motivate them. What are their hobbies? What kind of music do they like? Sports? Toys? Events?
How many reward Cards can my child get at the end of each day?
A child can earn up to 4 Reward Cards daily but can only select one Reward Card to keep. The other Reward Cards get put back into the Reward Bin. At the end of the week, players keep an additional card from the Weekly Reward Bin. There are two exceptions:
When a player draws a card where they have to “share one thing they like about themselves.” This card allows them to keep two of the rewards chosen from the Reward Bin after they share.
If your kiddo picks multiple money cards, they keep them so they can accumulate. They add up the value the money cards picked, and are rewarded with the sum of the money on the cards.
For example: My child picked four cards, including two money cards worth 50 cents each. They chose to keep the money cards. So their reward is the sum, one dollar.
When and why do you highlight tasks on a Task Sheet?
When first starting the game, it might be beneficial to “start small”. In this case, it might be helpful to expect your child to complete only a few tasks on the Task Sheet, as they are getting used to the game. In this scenario, you would highlight tasks that they are NOT expected to complete. These highlighted tasks count towards their total for the day, along with their other stamped tasks. This allows the kiddos the chance to still earn reward cards even if they weren’t expected to complete all 12 or 18 tasks that day.
If there are other reasons your kiddo can’t complete a task for the day, for reason’s outside of your kiddo’s control, simply highlight these tasks that cannot be completed as well. Again, these tasks count towards their total for the day, along with their other stamped tasks.
