10 Ways to Make Toilet Training Fun & Exciting

Blue & Yellow Make Green - Put a few drops of blue food coloring in the toilet and show your child that the color turns green when he or she pees!

Potty Targets - Purchase or make toilet targets to teach your child to aim. Cheerio's are a cheap alternative and work just as well.

Musical Potty Chair - Musical chairs, such as the Tinkle Toonz, play a tune when your child uses the potty!

Potty Training Doll - Anatomically correct drink & wet dolls, such as the Corolle or Aquini dolls, help make potty training fun and easy. These dolls can be used with Dr. Phil's Potty Training Method.

Potty Training Watch - Make potty time reminders fun and exciting with the VibraLite potty training watch. The VibraLite watch can be set to vibrate every 30 minutes as a fun reminder that it's time to sit on the potty!

Books, Videos, & DVDs - Potty training bedtime stories, videos and DVDs are a fun and educational way to introduce toilet training to your child.

Charts & Stickers - Potty training charts and stickers are great motivational tools. Start by giving stickers for sitting on the potty. After a while, give stickers only when your child uses the potty. Finally, offer a small toy as a reward for 3 accident free days.

Fun Potty Training Pants - Potty training pants and liners come in fantastic colors and usually feature your child's superhero. Let your child his or her training pants or underwear.

Phone Call From Superhero - Reward your child for using the potty with a phone call from his or her superhero. Enlist friends or neighbors to play the part.
