This review is for the Kids Night In Box.
- Learning Activity
- Healthy Snack
- DIY activities
Everything inside our box. This month’s box focused on teaching kiddos some very important concepts: money, earnings, investments, savings, and interest. What a fantastic theme for the month.
Our Finance Club magazine style information book! 🙂 I am a huge fan of these extremely detailed instruction booklets that are exclusively designed by the Kids Night In team! Kudos to them for creating such colorful & creative informational booklets!
The first page lists everything in order to get you started with all the activities planned out for the kids.
Book Of The Month: If You Made A Million By David M. Schwartz
What a fun way to teach conceptual skills to the kids’ ages 4-6. The short story is engaging and incorporates math concepts and teaches about the value of money.
The illustrations were fun to look at and my 4-year-old was pretty enthralled the entire time we read the story!
After reading our book, it was time to have some fun – so we busted out our Play Money (received in the box) and got some learning done. Loved how the kids did not even realize that they were essentially learning important skills! So it was a fun way to incorporate teaching about nickels, dimes, quarters, and pennies all at the same time. 🙂
Income Earnings And Making Ice Cream
This was obviously the activity of the month that the kids just couldn’t wait to get into. However, this activity was all about teaching kids that money is earned and does not come free!
So in order to make some income, the kiddos had an important job of being an ice-cream maker! Following the instructions, the girls were ready to get started on making their ice-cream! 😉
The ingredients we received in our box were: salt, sugar, vanilla essence and ziplock bags, so all the non-perishable items, which was certainly helpful! We decided to be adventurous and go with the frozen yogurt variety for our choice of ice-cream. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s so much healthier too! 😉
The larger ziplock bag held all the ice, while the smaller one had all the ingredients (milk, yogurt, vanilla essence, & sugar). We made sure to double bag everything, in case of an accident or a spill.
Combining the ice-cream mixture bag into the ice-bag – it was time to use up all that energy and put it to good use :D. The kids had a ball of a time shaking the bag vigorously until our ice-cream started coming together nicely.
We decorated it with some of our favorite toppings and chowed it down! 😉 Probably the hardest ice-cream of their life as of yet, but what an awesome way to learn that things do not come free! Better to learn earlier than later in life. 🙂
Our Finance Club magazine also had pages dedicated to teaching kids about saving money and earning interest. These concepts are a bit too advanced for my kids, however perfect for kids ages 5+.
What an educational month by Kids Night In! A perfect way to teach little ones about the value of money by providing them a real-life experience as they made their ice-cream! 🙂 It’s always exciting to see what Kids Night In comes up with each month because their themes are educational yet super fun and keep the kids genuinely involved for a long time!
