This is for those of you following my posts on the topic of home management and children’s chores — a photo of the “prize basket”.
As mentioned in the children’s chores post, the prize basket contains all sorts of goodies for which points (earned for diligent work) can be traded. The most expensive thing in the basket cost me $5.00 — the cheapest, just pennies. Most items were a dollar or two.
Point values are marked on the items with Sharpie. You can clearly see one marked 50/100. This means that the “cost” for this item is 50 points for the oldest four “buddies” , or 100 for the youngest four (who do about half the work).
