Need an idea

Two of my boys had their birthdays in July. In addition to their normal gifts, I also gave them $$ ($2/year of age) in a creative way.

My 14 year old I taped $28 to some kleenexes, put them back in the box & wrapped the box. He thought I gave him kleenex until he started pulling and pulling & $$ just kept coming.

My 7 year old I hung up ballons each of which had a different amount of $$ inside.

My middle boy turns 10 in a month and I need some unique ideas to give him his $$. Any thoughts?

My mom once took some odd amount like $83 and crumpled it up with newspaper and stuffed it in a box for her brother.

Hmmm...maybe. I'll keep it in mind.

For my SS's high school graduation, my brother gave him a shoebox full of nickels.

My mom put mine in a puzzle box. Hardest thing ever to open!

You can do 2 rolls of quarters.

That sounds like a cool idea and something I may try and do with ds.

 once I got a can of tomato soup, but somebody had taken off the label, taped money to it, then attached it back to the can.

or what about those fake cans of Pledge or whatever that the bottom unscrews?

That sounds neat - any idea where I'd find fake cans of pledge?
