Mini-economies are a way to teach children responsibility, autonomy, and money. In a mini-economy, kids have jobs, earn play money, shop at the home store, and eventually start their own businesses. But what does it take to start up a summer project like this at home?
It’s not that hard, and in this one-hour Zoom meeting we will show you how. Our presenter is Stephen Day, an expert in teaching economics and personal finance to kids. He also runs a mini-economy at home with his own kids (ages 10, 8, 6, and 4). In fact, Stephen was even part of an at-home mini-economy when he was a kid!
This workshop will be via Zoom, the link will be sent via the confirmation email you receive. There is no limit on the number of attendees, so feel free to tell a friend about this, too.
