Making Stuff: Kids Money Banks

by This is Carrie on January 10, 2011

I’ve never been able to find the perfect bank for the girls so we finally decided to design and make our own.  Perusing the aisles in the craft store, I found wooden boxes which I compartmentalized with an extra piece of balsa wood (also found at the craft store) and some E6000 glue.  Slots in the top of the box were made with an X-acto knife.

Once all the pre-work was done, the girls had fun picking out and mod podging their paper onto the boxes as well as stamping the labels to help keep their money straight.

Hopefully we’ll start out the new year developing good money saving and spending habits.

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t
mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any ideas or tips? Thank you!

These songs and their lyrics are more than just iconic.
Or was it instead a happy dark night where you sat near a
bonfire with your friends eating marshmallows. Its lyrics are both rapped and sung,
and set a steady, contagious rhythm that will
turn you into a perpetual motion machine.

This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader
entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what
you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

My family every time say that I am killing my time here at net, except I know I
am getting familiarity everyday by reading such
fastidious articles or reviews.
