FHE treat

Tonight Colten was Family Home Evening treat. He picked our favorite family activity. We go to the local grocery store with a bulk food section. Tonight Colten picked the magic number of $1.11 (for Jan 11th) The goal is to be the closest to the target price without going over. The rule is that you can pick whatever you want in this section you just have to get as close to the target amount without going over. (if you go over you pay double what it costs) This rule was started because the kids quickly figured out that they could just get lots of candy and oops they went over. They are sneaky! You also can't use calculators. They have to do the math in their head.Mason has said that some night he is going to get tea bags. (they are .09 a piece) Then he could guarantee his win but the down side of that is he would have nothing to eat. He has not done it yet.
Tonight our winner was Kassidy with $1.09. I need to come up with some kind of roaming trophy that the winner gets. Any ideas?


  1. I love that idea! What a fun mom you are!

  2. Okay, that is such a fun idea to do with older kids. I don't think Ashley and Katie would get it yet... but I'll have to remember that one.

  3. We love this idea too! Maybe the winner could get a king's/queen's septor out of a dowl rod and lollipops (the winner gets to eat the lollipops of course)? That or just ride shotgun the entire Tuesday following :)
