I don't remember where I got this idea, but I'm sure I read it somewhere online. I've created a Treasure Box containing coins with the names of each sweet little child on them. I'll use it to pick helpers whenever I need one. However, they'll only get to help if they have been listening and participating.
This little box wasn't difficult to put together. I was planning on building one myself and had even found a few tutorials online. Then I found this unfinished box at Hobby Lobby for about $3. That was a no brainer! I used stain that was left over from my chair refinish and Pro Deo sign. That stain is now DONE! It was sludge at this point and I was barely able to scratch out enough for this box. My wonderful friend cut the letting out for me on her Cricut. For the coins I purchased 1" wood discs online, spray painted them gold, then printed out the kids names on 1" clear, round labels. Wa-lah! I had my treasure box complete with treasure.
Hopefully the kids like it on Sunday!
