Didn’t even have to play the Tom Sawyer card to get help with this apple butter oroject.
To be fair, they are my children, and peeling implies them using sharp objects, albeit simple peelers, but still. Daddy was giving them something sharp, and telling them to skin something with it. How could they refuse?
The sweet treat that ensues is a good reinforcement as well, but I aint kidding nyself, these kids want to cut something!!!
