I really need to formalize this with Scooter. We've talked to him about it, but have not set up the physical receptacle. And using found coins is a great way to go about it!

L. was VERY intrigued with the "Luke Sidewalker" site I posted. And once we made the "rule" about spare change he hasn't deviated from it )he has a healthy--almost fearful--respect for rules, as a lot of kids with Asperger's do.

I love the idea of making a charity jar with found money - my kids nearly get into fist fights over street pennies.

What a beautiful thought. I know my B would love starting a charity jar, she talks about giving to the less fortunate all the time and we do so in our own way but the jar would be such a tangible way for her to see us doing something charitable. Well done! :0)

I've been mulling over what to do with all these found pennies, nickels, etc.--spending them on popsicles is okay, but I've been itching to help my kids put the change to a better use. It didn't hurt that the kids fight too much over the found change!
