  • Clean and close the shoe box. Seal it with tape on the sides to prevent it from opening.
  • Help your child cover it with wrapping paper or any of the colourful papers of their choice with glue.
  • Set it aside to dry.
  • In the meantime, discuss with them what they would like to decorate their piggy bank with. 
  • Prepare the decorations. (apply sequins or glitter or stickers or paint words like ‘Save, Travel, Live’ etc.)
  • Once the decoration plan is decided, get the covered box and make a slit to slide in the money. 
  • Next, add the decorative items. Personalise it by writing your child’s name.

The whole activity will serve as a fun time with your little one while you explain to them the concept of money and the importance of saving it.
