We’ve taken this gem of an idea from Laura Symonds (here on Facebook and Instagram). Setting up a tuck shop at home is a great idea, because it not only teaches the kids some valuable money lessons, it also curbs the nagging, and can be really fun too. Win, win win!

The activity: Home Tuck Shop

  • Write out a list of snacks
  • Put prices next to each one
  • Stick the shopping list of the fridge
  • Give your kids a set amount a day to buy from the tuck shop (Laura suggests £1)
  • Now, every time they want a snack, they can come to you, choose what they want, and pay for it, counting their real money.
