I don't know quite what it is, but expose my kids to something, and they are keen as mustard to do it themselves.

Go to a dinosaur exhibit - suddenly we're drawing, talking and wanting to watch movies about dinosaurs.

Read about superheroes - suddenly we're (Jack, mostly) dressing up as superheros.

Watch Toy Story - suddenly cowboys and spacemen are the go.

What you are about to see is what happened after we took the car through a carwash...

 

Yes, it happened. Last Saturday. With an incredibly reluctant father who was forced to admit...IT WAS FUN!

Don't know if you can see the price - $1! And we used polish. Wow, that's a bargain!

Our biggest problem was that the people who stopped by seemed to think we were selling bikes and scooters. Nooo. Those bikes were our own that I had Kylie and Jack practice on while we waited for customers.

And we waited...

And waved at the people going by...

And called out to every bike that rode past...

...

I paced the washing of our bikes and scooters because I suspected it would be slow.

And it was...

So wifey sent out a text:

And one family turned up with five bikes/scooters. We were in business! What with the neighbours two scooters, those five and wifey paying for the wash her bike had without her knowledge, we ended the day with a grand total of $8!

Not bad for a first go. Best of all, it really was fun!

Great idea, Kylie!
