I love this idea. Start a savings shadow box with a picture of what they're saving for. This would also be cool for the kids, to teach them to save for something.

Great idea. The kids can have a visual of their progress with a reminder of what they are saving for. DIY Tutorial- Shadow Box Piggy Bank

Target golf game. Use for Art Olympics or Review games - holes are worth certain points, can color them primary/secondary/tertiary and make a point value...Easy to make, lots of fun.

Use a die cut door hanger and clothes pins and this is a great learning craft. www.accucut.com .....this is adorable but the weight of the clothes pins makes it hang weird. also not much room to write... either have to write on both sides or accept that the "Done" clothes pins will be upside down. Good idea. Just might tweak it so it's not a door hanger.
