Widget: "But I need Flynn and Rapunzel!"
Me: "Where's your money, Widget?"
Widget: "In your purse, in your wallet."
Me: "Really? I think that is Mommy's money."
Widget: "Yep. And mine, too!"
So I decided we needed to figure out a way to give her her own money-that she earns. My hubby and I decided Widget could get paid for doing chores around the house so she can save up her own money to purchase the 'extra' toys she wants. And to make earning money even more fun, I created a Chore Bank for Widge to collect her new monies and not spend any of 'my' money doing so...gotta love FREE projects!!!
What I used:1-mini cereal box
*I had everything list above on hand, so I did not need to purchase anything new for this project = Free
I grabbed my scissors and cut out a coin slot in the top flaps of the cereal box.
Then I cut the scrapbook paper to fit around the box.
I used adhesive tape to adhere the paper to the box (because it has a stronger grip than a plain old glue stick).
I also cut a piece of paper to fit over the coin slot in the top of the box-a bit tricky, but looks great in the final product.

And there you have it! A Chore Bank made from a mini cereal box.
Do your kids have an allowance or get paid for chores? How old were your kids when you implemented any allowance or payment system?
