StayAtHomeChallenge #18 – it’s all about Needs and Wants. Understanding the difference between needs and wants is key to good decision making in all aspects of life, not just money. Often, we could all do with a refresher on these concepts – not just the kids 🙂

The activity: Needs & Wants list

We’ve made an easy PDF that you can print out and the kids can have a go at compiling a list. They can add any ideas they have, or you could make it more specific, and get them to only use items in a specific room for example. Once they’ve filled it out you can discuss why they decided to put each item into a particular category. Can they justify all of their choices?
