It's not very often that my girls get their imaginations together and do something that brings us all a lot of JOY. After all, they're eleven and thirteen years old now, so they're beginning to move onto bigger and better things.
But what could be better than still having a great imagination?
Or enJOYing pleasing those whom they love?
This week, the girls came up with the idea to make a "sample station" for lunch. They always enJOY grocery shopping with me, especially when there are a few sample stations as we journey through the store.
They knew that I was busy that day, so they decided to help out by making lunch for all of us. And what better way to do this than to make a sample station?
They came up with nine different food and beverage samples, and so I made three different trips through the living room as they offered their wares. I think my favorite sample was the organic tortilla chips and salsa - yum!
I thought it was cute how they made signs to go with each sample. They also hastily wrote out quick summaries of the foods so that as I came to their station to learn about the sample being offered, they were able to tell me all about the product, including its price per serving, which was something new for them to learn how to figure out.
I gave them some tips on public speaking and working with the public, and they enjoyed that a lot.
I don't know if they'll ever be "super sellers" of any particular product as they become adults, although Brittany might. She loves to make money by encouraging others to buy things that she's made, drawn, developed...well, you get the picture.
As long as she doesn't try to sell her parents in order to get more money, we'll be fine.
Thank you, girls, for a fun lunchtime this week. Feel free to set up your sample stations whenever you please!
