WORK TOGETHER

Sarah Heeringa (Editor of Inspire magazine, former editor of Parenting magazine and mother of four) shared a fabulous family tip that she and her husband do when making important family purchases.

They decided to buy a trail bike for their children, but wanted them to value it and contribute towards it. They took a picture of the motorbike, expanded
the photograph and cut it into a hundred squares.

An outline of the bike, and squares, was put on the refrigerator. Each square was given a monetary value of $2. When any of the children did an extra
job around the house, they got to paste a square or two onto the fridge. They could also turn their pocket money into ‘bike money’ if they wanted.
Over the course of six months the kids paid their $200 share of the new bike.

Can you think of a lovelier way to have everyone pitch in and see the fruit of their labour grow? ‘They also appreciated the bike so much more because
they had to work for it’ said Sarah.
