Doesn't it seem like there is always an annoying amount of spare change around your car? In our car it tends to pool up around the shifter and sometimes falls out the doors when opened. Embarrassing.
We started giving the kids the chance to help us clean out the car every once in a while and for payment, we give them all the change they find laying around the car. Sometimes this equals a big payout! Isaac and Izzy now have pouches full of US and foreign change.
Isaac loves to carry tons of coins around in his pockets. "In case I see a vending machine!" is his defense. And he is so good about buying little vending toys for his sister as well as himself. I find it equally adorable and annoying that whenever we see them he wants to buy another flimsy whatever-it-may-be out of the vending machine.
One day he was forced to come into a public ladies bathroom with Belle and I since the men's restroom looked extremely shady. Inside, he saw one of those "ladies feminine product" vending machines- and said in an irritated voice, "One time I put my quarters in the one that said "Napkin" and you know what? It wasn't a napkin that came out. It was like a sticker mixed with a mini diaper. What a waste. Why would anyone buy that!?"
I advised him to spend his quarters a bit more wisely....
