Kids Frugal Fun

If you’re the parent of a school-aged child, you know that a major skill most children struggle with is learning how to make change. This is also a challenge for some teachers to teach. When I was teaching 2nd grade I came up with a game that really helped my children understand a little better.
Children love to engage in dramatic play/games and I tried my hardest to allow them to do this during center time in the classroom. Games and role playing are huge learning tools! When I first began teaching I also waited tables at night at our local Applebee’s (further evidence that teachers are not paid enough). My students were aware of my second job and were always very interested about it. I thought I would take advantage of this interest and use it to grab their attention, hence my Dining Out game was invented.

Kids Frugal Fun

Each week I try to bring you a craft you can do with your kids that is both educational AND frugal. Bubbles are always a favorite with kids but can get costly if you continually purchase them. I’ve given you a very frugal recipe for bubbles and some educational applications. They may seem a little far fetched but teachers are notorious for being able to make anything educational! :)

Bubble Recipe:
4 cups water
1 cup dishwashing liquid (I used generic and it worked just fine)
1/4 cup corn syrup
