This is How We Roll


Hmpf...I crack myself up!
Anyway...Josh finished rolling this entire container of pennies in about 2 days of short sessions. He did need a bit of supervision (read double checking!) to make sure the penny count came out right but he did really well.
All we did is have him stack pennies in little piles of 10. Then he counted 5 piles and we stuck them in the wrappers. Easy!
Now why did I let them sit there for 6 years on my kitchen counter???

Where did you get those wrappers? I have many pennies rolling around in my house!

B
My Dad gave us his but he said that they are found in the stationary department of most stores. Let me know if you find them!

So, the question is... how much money was there?!

Oh yeah, it turned out to be only $6. Each roll is worth 50 cents so he rolled 12 rolls. We had a few pennies left over, a pile of other coins and several canadian pennies. (The trouble with living in the northern midwest!)

Oh and we are letting him keep what he rolled. He wants to buy everyone a christmas gift...how far do you think 6 dollars will stretch....
