Save for the holidays
Want to teach your child how to save? Here's how!
Holidays tend to bring on the "I wants" so it's time to start teaching the value of money.
Buy a moneybox, like this dwarf from Big Blue, and explain to your child that the money that goes in there can be used for holiday treats. Get your child to contribute a portion of his pocket money to the moneybox.
If you haven't started giving your child pocket money yet, when your child asks for a treat you have to pay for, give him the money and encourage him to only spend a little bit of it so he has some left over for the moneybox.
When you're on holiday, give him the money from the box and let him buy himself something with his money. He will feel empowered and will have learnt a valuable lesson about saving!
