Recap: Budgeting Night at Olympia’s Hands on Children’s Museum

This past Friday, DFI participated in Olympia’s Hands on Children’s Museum free Friday night with a budgeting for your bank activity.

Nearly 200 kids developed a budget that allowed them to “buy” one of three piggy banks and decorate it as they see fit.
Kids were given $10 play money and worked closely with their parents and DFI volunteers to develop their budgets.

Children with money left over for savings were given a special prize.

The activity was a hit, with several parents commenting that their children learned a real life skill.
