You need a pen and paper
If your child regularly earns pocket money you can ask them to plan out a budget.
Ask them to think about the different ways they spend their pocket money. See if they can think of three or four different categories, such as:
If they divided their money up between the different categories how many weeks would it take before they had saved (say) £20?
How long would it be before they could buy a particular gift?
Think of different ways they can plan to use or save money.
