Was this punishment too harsh?

My children broke the neighbors potted plants and I'm just so embarrassed! I'm making them write "I will play nicely with other people's things", and write a 2 sentence apology note.
This is complete torture to them and can barely make it to the 5th line... Ages are 5&6

    Nope. It'll teach them to respect other people's property and that there will be consequences if they break someone else's stuff. I'm sure they will learn their lesson after this.

    Quoting catrig:

    NO... not at all. I would give them chores to do and pay them. ( I would hold onto the money though)  and then have them buy the planter and plant that they broke to replace the neighbors.
