Creativity Challenge

Today's writing prompt comes courtesy of Tumblr: You have to entertain 10 kids for 10 hours. You get $100 at an office supply store. What's your plan?
Prices pulled from the Office Depot website (because yes, I do get that detailed with random shit like this).
  • Bankers boxes to make castles: $35.19 for 12
  • Construction paper for making coats of arms for the castles and assorted other decor: $9.49 for 300 sheets
  • 12"x18" newsprint (because you know someone isn't going to be interested in the castle thing): $8.79 for 500 sheets
  • Box of 1000 economy wooden craft sticks: $8.49
  • 2x 12-pack Crayola markers (and let's hope no more than two kids want the same color at once): $5.49 each
  • 2x 2-pack symmetrical kids' scissors (not leaving the left-handed kids behind here!): $5.49 each
  • Crayola 64-pack crayons: $5.49
  • 2x 6-pack Scholastic glue sticks: $3.39 each

Total, including 8.75% CA sales tax: $100.92. I think I can find that other buck in the bottom of my purse. ;-)
