Ari and Ryan have been wanting this Lego pirate ship that cost $99.99. We made a chart with how much was needed to buy it. Whenever they got money, they filled in a space. Recently, they were able to save enough money and off we went to Borders. The Lego store was sold out and I get an educators discount at Borders. They ended up being able to get the pirate ship and 2 accessories to go along for the same amount at Borders thanks to the discount.
I love it that they both love legos! They work as a team to save their money to buy different lego sets. They also spend many, many hours together playing with the legos (yes I do realize the proper name is Lego Bricks but they will always be just legos to me).
