Next, we took our bag of money for a foundation Lesson. This was so much fun. The kids were excited to open the money bag. I set the money out and explained to the girl’s piece by piece what each one was. This is a penny, a dime, a dollar, etc. Then they pretended to count it and give money to each other. This was fun and the kids never had play money before, so it was a new experience.
Next head over to www.kidsnightinbox.com/moneysongs where they have fun songs about money. Including one entitled “I have a Shiny Penny“. It was super cute.
The kids favorite part is typically snack time. For this months box, we were to make ice cream. While I was really excited to do so the girls were a bit restless so we did not get the chance. We are going to save that for a separate date night.
we turned our box into our own piggy bank. Cutting a slit in the top I explained to the girls that we would put money inside and save for a new LOL doll. Those are their favorite toys. The next part of the box required setting up a bank account for your little ones to earn interest but my girls already have one, so this part of the box was already done. I did, however, try to explain to them what interest was and how it works.
This month’s Kids Night In Box was super cool, we can’t wait for next months!
