How would you deal with this?

Caught DC (5&7) stealing tomatoes from the neighbours garden. They'd been allowed to play out and crept through hedge.
Brought them in and made them help fold and put away laundry. DH is adding the nicest tomatoes he can find to the shopping and we'll say they have to split the cost from their money boxes. Make a card each apologizing for stealing tomatoes. Take round and deliver later.

Sounds like you are dealing with it perfectly.

Do you need to do more? I think the punishment is enough, especially if it is the first time they have done something like this. I would also have a chat about not stealing from others but other than that I wouldn't draw things out any more.
