I noticed the other day that our front lawn had dandelions popping up all over. I told my boys that if they would pick them, I would pay them a penny per dandelion. Two of them got busy and brought me a couple of pails full of them. When I told them how much they had made, they grabbed their pails and went out for a second go-round. This time, their big brother joined them.
Yes, the lawnmower could have done the same job much more easily, but my boys actually enjoyed searching out all those dandelions. It kept them busy for a long time and now they have a few bucks to spend. I think it was a win-win.
