Drawing up a budget is a great life skill that every child should learn. This video uses the example of planning for a birthday to help your child budget, apply discounts, and host an awesome party!
After watching the video, have fun with this idea. Ask your child what they would spend a party budget on, and help them access catalogues or websites with party supplies to plan an awesome party.
Better yet, next time you have someone coming over for dinner or a movie night, have your child help you budget for your event. If you have $50 to organise food for everybody, what is it that you can cook or buy so everyone has a nice time?
