Teach the kiddos the value of money and avoid spending too much this holiday season.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 15, 2012
Resourceful tips about vacation savings with kids are featured on Kids Activities Blog. The price tag that usually comes with a family vacation is usually not "family friendly." Kids Activities Blog has researched a lot of creative ways about how to save money for the special family vacation.
The most important advice is to get the whole family involved in saving for the special trip. Often children are not aware of how much small savings can add up over time. Pointing out to them that every nickel saved in the household can get them closer to a vacation at the beach will make them aware and the whole family will be surprised at the ingenious ways the kids will come up with saving a nickel or two.
Some of the ingenious ideas to save money are setting up a vacation account, making a vacation jar and putting it on the kitchen counter. The saved money at the grocery store through coupons or any other discounts can be placed into the jar. Other clever ideas include budgeting the entertainment expenses from the family over a period of time such as going to get DVDs at the library or choosing free family entertainments offered throughout town. Another original tip includes hosting a vacation fund yard sale. And best of all, a special holiday tip includes promoting creative gift giving within the family. Creative gift giving includes making a chore coupon book, giving gifts of love such as a back rub, and many more other gift ideas that do not require spending money at the store.
