Money money money

Kids love earnings and had done pretty well until the sniffly junk hit our home. Maybe we can put in a lesson about ambition and pushing through even if you don't feel like it. Store opens Friday!

We are doing a stewardship unit in our Character curriculum by KONOS.  We are going to have a way of earning play money for a shopping day on March 1.  Kids are excited to shop away.  We've done stewardship of our bodies and will do stewardship of time, but right now it is stewardship of time and resources.
Our pay scale and expense sheet.  Feel free to copy or adapt if you plan to do a store of your own.
We are excited to start this in the morning.  Today is practice.  So far the kids are on fire.  Chores are getting done without warning.  We'll see how long that lasts.
We just got off of a vacation that lasted 11 days.  The kids did math at Grandmas and went on a field trip to a train museum and played in the Rocky Mountains.  Mom and Dad enjoyed some R&R in the Caribbean.  We still have jet lag, but hopefully with this incentive it will help us to get back into the swing of things.  Silly me... we should have put the gifts from vacation in the store and let the kids buy them from us.  LIVE and LEARN.  We might do this once a year because it is so fun!   Valentines Day is tomorrow, so I gotta get something together for that.  Fun times!
