Send the kids on a treasure hunt for that elusive pot ‘o gold. Tell them you found Lucky Leprechaun’s secret map to his treasure chest, and watch their eyes light up as they find the clues leading to their prize. When you find the prize with your child, be sure to count the gold coins and value them by size similiar to real coins.
Once you value them, you can provide your child with a scenerio of what you need to purchase for the week and how much needs to be saved. Not only does your child have fun with thin activity, but they learn a money saving lesson as well.
