My Kids Went Shopping

Every year, the school hosts a Secret Santa Shopping for kids in  the school.  It's a way of teaching  the kids how to shop in a budget for  their loved ones.  We gave our kids  $20 each to shop.

They came home with the stuff that they got and immediately  told us to open the gifts that they bought lol.

I volunteered to help  the other Moms on the day that my  kids has to shop.  My son wanted me to help him but my daughter, being as independent as she is, she did not need any help.

They were very proud that they did not spend it all.  They  both have money left.

I must say that they were  pretty good shoppers.  I will post what they bought for us next time.

24 valuable thoughts they wrote, what's yours?:

Teaching our kids as early as we can on how to spend money wisely is the best thing we parents can do for them. This isn't for us in the future but it is for them when the time comes that they are old enough to decide for themselves.

i missed doing this with my nieces and nephew when they were the age of your kids, they always have fun, and it challenged them, and because of that, they never became demanding for this and that for the activity taught them the value of money :)

your kids look very lovely Rose

This should be also be done here to give children practical lessons in handling money without taking out the fun.

Triz's mom said...

That is definitely a good lesson to teach them what to buy and how to budget!

As they... Practice makes perfect.. ay parang mali ang adage ko .but just the same, exposing your kids to practice money management at a young age will definitely lead to success in the long run.

Thats a very lesson learning program for school, in that way the kids will be able to know how to budget and to shop for love ones.

Ria C said...

That's how we train our kids to value money sis. I'm glad you gave them the responsibility of handling their expenses.

Lainy said...

That is so nice, Rose! At such a young age, the Burritos already know how to handle money well and its value. Must be one fun experience for them :-)

Pinx said...

I still have to teach my kids the value of money and how to spend it wisely. Great job for instilling this early on your kids! They look so happy with their purchases!
