saving money in a tin for activities for DD while on school holidays

June 8th, 2008 at 10:43 pm

I already have some change in a money tin hidden in my house, though it wouldn't be much.

So I have decided that between now and then (end of June) I will put more change into this tin and when the holidays come, we'll count the money and can use this to do a couple of activities on the holidays.

got DD's school photos back today..

hav to help my DD with an inquiry learning project

May 25th, 2008 at 01:31 am

Got a letter from DD's school asking me to help her with an inquiry learning project. we had a little over a week to complete it.

We started it this morning and its looking good, except for the big apple tree drawn in texta that DD drew coz she felt like it...lol. I had to laugh, we have just stuck some computer printed pictures over the top.. at least it looks like her work.

I'm starting an allowance for my 6 year old DD.

May 21st, 2008 at 11:51 am

I've decided to begin giving my DD who has just started Primary school (or Elementary school for all u Americans).

She has decided that she wants to start taking money to school, but she also wants a lunch order, and also to buy chocolates at the supermarket and toys at the cheap shops.. all this together is way too much so I've decided to give her 50c per year of her age per week, so $3 a week. But the allocation of this $3 per week will be as follows:
60% spending and/or short term savings goals
30% long term saving
10% charity of her choice

this works out to
$1.80 spending
90c long term savings
30c charity

Who else gives their children allowances, how old are your children and how much do you give them? And what are your expectations of their money?

My sister in law and new baby nephew didn't make it here this morning as he is sick.

But still had a visit from my mum, and my adult niece stayed over last night so she hitched a ride home with my mum as she is boarding there while going to University.

Finally now have the place to myself for a couple of hours, so am going to get a bit of a rest and do some knitting after ive done a few jobs on the computer.
