Yesterday morning, we squeezed in an important lesson of saving money. Ethan and Hannah both have cute little “piggy banks” given by Ipoh Ah Ma in the shape of an elephant (for Ethan) and a cow (for Hannah), and they have been diligently saving their coins and asking friends and relatives for extra coins to add to their collection.
I thought it was high time I took them to the bank to save their moolah there, since I had been telling them about it for a long while.
Thankfully we only had to wait like 1 minute for our turn, and the kids eagerly handed over their piggy banks to to bank teller for counting. They were delighted to see the coins being poured into a box and then to hear the coins being fed into the coin-counting machine.
We were done in a jiffy and I then returned the empty coin boxes back to them for future savings. Definitely a great practical experience for them both! 😀
Here’s their voluntary “silly-face” pose before we left the bank:
