    Default Need some ideas for...

    Home-made vouchers! I have decided to do up some vouchers to give to my boys for Christmas in order to try and save money and to be honest, because they're starting to become a little too materialistic for my liking.

    The only ideas I have so far are:

    1. Stay up one night (Weekend only)
    2. Choose your favourite dinner
    3. Skip a bath! (Saturday night only!)
    4. Movie Night! You pick the movie!
    5. A trip to the pool

    ... and that's about all I have! I figure I need at least 10 to make them good... throw your best ideas at me!!

    one treat outside of regular times. eg one icecream at lunchtime.
    one pass on a chore, eg one time excuse for not making his/her bed.
    one free night for a friend to stay over.
    ... that's about all I can think of. marie

    Great idea Nom!

    - Special afternoon out alone with Daddy
    - Pancakes for breakfast
    - Make a cubby house with sheets and the kitchen table

    Subbing.

    What are the T&Cs? For example how much notice do they have to give you before cashing in a voucher? What if they have been playing up, do they still get to cash in a voucher?

    - one pass to skip their vegetables at dinner (and still get dessert or a treat)
    - a pass that makes mum or dad stop whatever they are doing and play with them for 15 minutes (or however long)

    Good question. I hadn't thought that far ahead. Any suggestions? I would imagine if they had really been annoying me all day and the. Suddenly wanted to cash in a "stay up late" voucher I would hardly be in the mood for it... hmmm...
