See a need, fill a need! Join our family as we help children build their own libraries. Click the link & find out how to give a book as a classroom party favor without spending more money than you already are.

**How to make it happen: We probably spend at least $1 per kid when we put together a party favor for a school party... right? Well, you can buy $1 books through Scholastic Books. If you order online and enter your classroom code, your teacher will be able to get a book for the classroom FOR FREE. So for what you are already spending, you will get a book into the hands of each child and a book in the classroom. How awesome is this?

Every child needs to grow up money-smart. This site help guide parents and educators on what age groups should know at their age.

Neat alternative to pinatas. A punch box for party favors - its like the price is right game!

instead of arbitrarily giving kids an allowance. The kids can pick what they want to do and earn as much money as they choose - Dave Ramsey talks about this...very cool
