    Tried this activity out with my 6 year old and found it to be one of my favorites. We had a talk before hand about what she really wanted (she chose a new doll and accessories), how much it would cost, and ways she could save up. She loved the craft idea and understood the concept...She's still going at it, but she's getting closer to her goal and is constantly counting how much she has saved already.
