Feeding Penny Pig Book:: Making Kids Money Savvy {Giveaway}

Mimi's Fun House encourages grandparents to have fun with their grandkids. Even though you probably spoil your grandchildren rotten, grandparents always seem to have a special ability in teaching important lessons. Mimi's steps in to help you tune in to these special features a grandparent can possess with fun resources such as books, games, clothing, and other fun valuable resources.

In the book, Feeding Penny Pig, Mimi is in search of the perfect gift for her granddaughter Laney. She spots gold in the special pig, Penny, who teaches Laney the value of responsibility by earning the coins to feed her.

This book is ideal for children ages 4-8 who are ready to learn the value of a dollar, earning an allowance, and responsibility.

Along with this book, you and your grandchild can build a piggy bank to help teach responsibility.  

Plastic Bottle Piggy Bank

Materials:
Plastic Bottle – Bleach bottle, milk gallon bottle, etc.
Pink pipe cleaner
Pink paint for plastic (Spray paint if possible)
Decals to decorate Piggy (Hearts, letters for child’s name, pom poms, etc.
4 spools for legs
2 large Eyes
Plastic Cement

Instructions:
  • Cut a slit in the top for the coins to drop in.
  • Be sure to put down plastic for painting and spray paint outside if you use spray paint.
  • Spray paint bottle. Spray cap separately. This may take more than one coat. Don’t worry if it runs a little because the child will cover most of the bank with the decals.
  • When the paint is dry, cement the 2 eyes under the handle.
  • Put the top on the bottle for the snout and mark it with black marker for holes in the snout.
  • Cut a small hole in the back of the bottle for the tail. Curl the pipe cleaner and insert into the hole.
  • Let the child decorate with decals. Preferably, put the name and then cover the pig with decals from the craft store.
  • Cement small pom poms around to cover any spots that need to be covered.
There are many more fun activities like this you can try with your child at Mimi's blog

Where to buy: Feeding Penny Pig can be purchased at Mimi's Fun House for $14.95 or at Amazon for as low as $11.66.
