🏦 Talking to Kids About the Budget

Budget 2020 UK

Thought about trying to explain the latest #Budget2020 to your kids? It can actually be a great way to introduce some basic money concepts.⠀

  • You could explain what a budget is – It’s essentially just a plan for your money.⠀

  • Try talking about how they could make a plan for their own pocket money and save for the things they want.⠀

  • Or take it a step further and explain what tax is and how it’s used to support vital things like hospitals, schools and the police.⠀

For more ideas, activities and conversation starters on talking about the Budget with your kids check out the full post.
