It's hard to believe that summer is winding down and in just a few short weeks both of my boys will go back to school! One of our goals over the summer was to start working with our boys on budgeting and financial responsibility. The boys had an opportunity to earn an allowance each week and we wanted to use that to teach them about money management. I stumbled across this bank with four chambers including; "Save", "Spend", "Invest" and "Donate".
This was perfect as we wanted the boys to be able to visualize how dividing their money into different areas will allow them to reach various financial goals over time. This has been quite an experience and I've been pleasantly surprised at how the boys have chosen to divide their earnings. Today is allowance pay day so I thought I'd make a money themed lunch.
Today's lunch includes: double-decker grilled cheese sandwich, carrots/broccoli, kiwi/blueberries, cheese curds, almonds, sugar-free peanut butter cookies (you could use sunbutter in place of peanut butter if peanut allergies are a concern)
