Do everything without whining, complaining or arguing. Every one has their own jar. Start off the week with a set amount of quarters in each jar. If they are caught whining or complaining, they lose a quarter. At the end of the week, they get the money that remains. I love this!
Ice Cream in a Bag. In a small Ziplock bag put: 1/2 C. half and half, 1 Tbps. sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla. Insert that bag into a larger, one gallon Ziplock filled with ice and salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Then, remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream. The kids loved this one. They had fun preparing it and shaking it and were amazed that they actually ended up with ice cream. It tasted delicious!
