Day 240: Practing Money Skills

After your kids begin to get an idea of what money is and what it’s worth, take advantage of trips to the grocery store to practice their money and counting skills. I deliberately went grocery shopping when I knew the store wouldn’t be too busy. I let my kids choose one item that they wanted.

When we went to the check-out counter, I gave my children the money they needed to purchase the item, and had them count it out to the clerk. Most clerks are very understanding and helpful in this process as long as there isn’t a long line of customers waiting.

Although there are many computer games, flash cards, and workbooks to help young children learn money skills, games and activities that you do together will yield better results. Stay away from anything that makes learning about money or math boring or stressful. Learning should be a fun, natural, and joyful process.
