second grade economics

Save birthday money + Lose teeth + Do chores

= lots of change

= enough money to buy a new Star Wars Lego set

(He’s been saving that money pretty much since birth.)


As opposed to 4-year-old Economics…

Use chore chart as coloring project


= No money


= Get photo taken with Barbie she found in the closet.

Mommy Economics

Kids who want things badly enough = Chores are done without complaining.

    I like your math! Isn’t it funny how every kid is so different with their money.

    Oh, I love this! That could be a picture of my 8 year-old (who is very into Legos) and my 4 year-old (who is really into coloring and does not seem to care about earning rewards).It is Food Allergy Awareness Week. Read my latest allergy post: True Story Tuesday
