On this last trip, we let each kid earn 8 quarters per day by doing various good deeds (like being nice to siblings, letting someone go first, or sit by mommy, or whatever would normally cause a fight.) We told them we were keeping track and would let them know at dinner time how many quarters they had earned so far. Of course there were always a couple quarters left to earn by brushing teeth and going to bed quickly.
This worked great for my 8, 6, and 4 year old. My almost 2 year old didn't ask for anything because the others weren't getting anything either. We would browse stores and they would dream about what they would pick on the last day. They each got 13 dollars (started with 1 dollar and earned 2 per day for 6 days.) We could have started earlier or before we left home, but you get the idea. I think $20 is a good amount for a souvenir usually, but they did fine with their $13.
