I made Will up a sheet so he can see how coins go together to make a dollar.
His giving bowl was filling up so it was time to total it up and send it to Cate for Foundation 18.
He had a great time making all the dollars and counting them up with a simple tally sheet.
High finance, high stress.
In the end he decided to keep some of his coins in his Giving Bowl because, in his own words, "It's just SO hard!" to collect the money up and then have it empty again.
We also decided to reward him with $1 pocket money for every $10 he collects.
I have also added a little widget to the side of the blog to keep a running total of how much we have donated. If you want to see where our money is going or if you want to help too- then click on the picture that shows our total donated.
We saved up a whole bunch of boxes from food and such and covered them in paper left over from the move. Then we decorated the with pens adding windows doors and such. They were great for a toy city. Stacking and knocking down and then after a week or two ripping and STOMPING!
