|Objective||To give children a fun place to keep their money and to start a conversation about money.|
Have your children create a wallet out of felt swatches it will give kids a place to keep their spending money.
1. Get some felt in various colors from a dollar store or a craft store.
2. Print the wallet templates from Nick Jr.
3. Have the kids cut out the felt based on the templates.
4. Glue the wallet together with fabric glue (also to be found at craft or dollar stores)
When their wallet is complete and the glue is dry you may want to ask your kids a few questions to follow up this activity. Some questions you could ask are:
1. What goes in a Wallet? (money, bank cards, credit cards, change)
2. What do you know about money?
3. Where does money come from?
4. What happens when we spend our money?
You may also want to give them a $1 or $5 bill to keep in their wallet.
