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.
