Orange Bird Feeder: 1 orange; 4 pieces of string cut into 24″ lengths; bird seed ~ With a sharp knife, cut the orange in half and scoop out the flesh. Pierce 4 small holes on opposite sides, about 1/2″ from the top edge of each half . Thread one piece of twine through a hole, and out the opposite end. Repeat with the second piece of twine in the remaining holes. Gather the ends together and tie in a knot. Repeat with the other half. Fill with bird seed and hang from sturdy branches outside.

I love this instead of the traditional "for better or worse. love, honor, obey, etc."
31 quarters in the jar at the beginning of the month, every day that they do not do their chores, they lose a quarter. Whatever is left at the end of the month they exchange for cash and the quarter jar is refilled. Not to do "allowance" for chores, but rather teach chores/responsibilities as how they contribute to family. Interesting perspective.
