If I Had 100 Dollars

On a recent trip to Pierce's school, there was a row of worksheets on the wall, from their 100 day celebration of school.  They were interesting - each child was so creative with what they would do with $100.  One girl said she would buy a jello bed and have a jello room.  Pierce?  He said he'd buy a service plan (for the old blackberry of my dad's that he carries around everywhere).  And of course, he'd buy a robot.  He drew a picture of Eve, from the movie Wall E. 
Readers, would you buy a jello bed if you had $100?

No Jello for me, I would rather have the robot!

I don't think so! I love Pierce's answer!

How does a 7 year old kid learn about service plans for smart phones? What a hoot!
Would the jello bed have some type of outer covering? You wouldn't be just lying in jello, would you?

Endah Murniyati said...

Oh no, I wouldn't. I would buy a composter machine. LOL...

Roan said...

Too funny! Nope, think I would pass on the Jello bed. Its fun seeing the world from a child's eyes.

I'd want Wall E!

Good one! This kind of exercise helps children to learn about money at early age!

Hilarity! I hope you're keeping a Rubbermaid Tub of priceless artwork and writings for you to show your kids when they're all grown up.

Eve. She is such a wonderful character on the movie. AND, he drew her very well.

(you may get this twice)

No jello for me, but I'd buy a robot for Pierce. :)

A jell-o bed? Oh, I don't think so. But I know of children who could uses $100 worth of food.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

jello bed is definitely unique. i'm afraid i'd just blow it on scratch feed for ducks. :)

I would not buy a Jello bed if I had $100. ;) I would not buy a Jelly bed at any price because I'm in charge of house clean up. :)

heerlijk hoe kinderen kunnen wegdromen.

Chatty Crone said...

Awe how sweet.

Ginny said...

I am impressed. The picture of Eve really does look just like her! That was an awesome movie! I think this is one of those school papers that you should keep forever. Hmmm...I might buy some coupons for free vet visits, we had a huge bill yesterday.

I read it before I read what you wrote and I thought why does he want a service plan. Of course all boys his age want a robot!

Gail Dixon said...

Any extra money I have goes to my starving college son. The jello bed is really thinking outside the box. Love Pierce's "survis" plan. Too cute!

A Quiet Corner said...

That is almost as cute as Mia's "bucket list"...:)JP

SweetMarie said...

I love how creative kids are. :)

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

That is so cute, that Pierce wants a service plan. I really do need to see Wall E. I'm afraid I would have to pass on a jello bed and just put the money toward bills.

Slamdunk said...

No, I'd pass on the jello bed. Our youngest son's fav movie right ow is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and the lead character on that show makes a jello bed and lots of other things out of jello--so it must have a following.

Linda said...

Okay, get that kid a robot! He has earned one.

Harry Flashman said...

I'd buy 7 boxes of Federal 115 grain full metal jacket 9mm Luger ammo in 50 round packs.

Oh, I just did that.......

Well, I'd send the $100 to my son then.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I would pass on the jello bed..that's too funny though. Kids come up with the cutest ideas.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I remember doing this kind of activity in school. It's fun seeing them budget it!

Busy Bee Suz said...

How clever is Pierce???
Me? I'd buy a pudding bed….and it would be chocolate.

Mila said...

I guess the next 100 € I'll spend will be in a hair salon, to get highlights. Which is a lot. More than a lot. So I'm not sure I'll actually do it.

Annette said...

How cute!! My son would surely buy himself another train! A service plan for a cell phone--well I'd say you're little man is quite practical :)

Michael Manning said...

Pierce is practical! I have a service plan for my phone. :)
