My kids begged and begged to get goldfish. I just happened to have two identical small fishbowls that I picked up at a thrift store at one point for $0.50 each, so we let them each buy a small "feeder" goldfish from Wal-Mart.

Here's my daughter's that we have affectionately dubbed "Tuna Cakes," which is her hilariously fitting version of "Precious Petunia Cakes" (an inside family joke): And here is my son's that he thinks he will name Sammy Brown (?!):
As you can see, they had a blast watching them!

The fishbowls are now on top of their dressers for safe-keeping. We'll get them down to feed them and watch them now and then, but this is the safest arrangement for now! :)
