Kids Already Bored? Check Out This Fun Activity Perfect for a Long Summer Day

We are all so busy during the school year that it is nice to have a bit of time during the summer to slow down and catch our breath. However, if you find that your child is a bit bored, show her how to become an entrepreneur. Kids like having extra spending money during the summer to pay for something at their favorite store, or to buy a treat from the ice cream truck.  That combination makes it a great opportunity to start a business. Teach accounting skills like counting money, using decimals, estimating, and using patterns to make predictions by helping your child start a business.  Easy businesses include dog walking, car washing, lemonade stands, and even selling slime. We all by now have a love/hate relationship with slime, so let them make a few dollars selling their favorite recipes.  Earning spending money motivates kids in math. Calculate expenses and profit opportunities. Project future earnings. Have fun!
