Now back to the program....
My kiddos are getting to the age where it's time to start thinking about going to Disney. My husband, nor I, have never been to Disney World. So it's kind of exciting for us as well.
We are trying to teach our kids that things do not come for free. That you have to work hard for what you want. And they are getting to the ages for chores, and lots of them. So we have started a Disney World Savings Plan, by doing chores.
Here is how it will work. They each will have chores to do each week. At the end of the week, they will each receive $5. I know how kids can be, especially mine, when it comes to getting money. I decided to make it visual for them. This way their money would be going somewhere for now, but they would know for what.
I got a big empty container from a friend. I needed it big because Disney is expensive, and it will take a little while of saving money to get enough to go. It is a jumbo size Animal Crackers container from Sam's. I cleaned it out, and took the tags off of it.
I had my mom cut some vinyl for me of Mickey and Minnie for the outside. This way when they see the container with money, they will know it is for Disney. They ask every day if I am putting money in there for their chores they have done that day. So it may take a little while to get the understanding across to them that this will happen, by them, once a week.
At $15 a week, it will take a while to save up. But, we will get there. And we will appreciate it so much more because of the time and hard work that went into us being able to go.
Do you have any other tips on saving for a trip to Disney World? I would love for you to share any tips or tricks with me. Thanks so much!
I like to party at these awesome places.
Have a great day.
