Saving Money (Age 5)

I had previously introduced Benny to the concept of money.  Now I wanted him to learn to save money.

He asked for a Gecko costume in early October.  So I told him to save his money and he can buy it.   I told him how much he needed and helped him count his money to see his progress towards the goal.  Sometimes he got a little frustrated and anxious but he made it.

Not only did he get the Gecko costume, but he went on to buy more costumes.  Now (December 2018), he's working towards a Hatchimal.
