It may not seem like a very exciting day to celebrate (especially when today is also Creamsicle Day!) but consider ways in which you can involve the children in the financial side of your program. Before sharing any financial information with children, run it by your supervisor. Depending on the children’s ages, you can share information such as what the program budget is for supplies, toys, equipment, field trips, and resources. Is there a part of the budget which is discretionary enough that the kids can even make suggestions about how to spend the money?
