This is better than doing chores?

There are many ways to earn money here at the Sparklee household.  There is always laundry to be folded and put away, various animals who need care, dishes to wash, floors to sweep, rooms to pick up...

And of course, perpetual pooper-scooping!

So why do my kids prefer to dump out the change bucket and wrap coins until late in the night?

Well, it can be done while watching TV.  The results are immediate.  And according to the kids, it's fun!

It seems tedious to me, but they had a great time sorting, counting, and even weighing the rolls (to make sure they were accurate.)

I was truly amazed at how much change I had collected from our pockets while sorting laundry over the years!
