Here it is – the tutorial on how to make a divided moneybox! Well, picture tutorial anyways….
I made it through SoYouThinkYou’reCrafty – I had counted myself out mid-week, so it was a bit of a shock in the end. And I don’t need your vote this week – it’s a break. And I haven’t even given thought to the next project – need to get on that!
Back to the moneybox – remember, we needed something different when my son (the 9 year old!) dropped a glass jug at the top of the steps and it broke into a million pieces, on the way down and on the final hit of the hardwood floor. Reenactment:
The kids were involved in making these because that way they have a vested interest to use them. Here’s a summary – –
Well, that was one easy tutorial – – maybe I should keep it to only pictures more often!?! That would probably drive you crazy. But I’m being lazy with writing a tutorial for this. So if you have questions, email me and I can probably get the answers.
The kiddos, owning up to their creations:
And a final view:
Works for us!! If you need a divided money system for kids, this could be your answer. Each box up costing less than $4.

I love these! It is such a great idea and the wood makes them practically indestructable.

We did something similar with our kids, but we used a “cigar” box and they decorated it and our categories were tithe, save, gifts, spend. I think all our kids are good with money now, they are all married. Some may even have their boxes!!
What a cute idea! I don’t have kids yet, but I’m filing this one away for the future!
This is a fabulous idea to help children learn about their money.
These are a brilliant idea! Definitely something I will put to use when I have a little one. I love that they each helped with them too.

I was thinking how cool it would be to make one side of the money box plexiglass so they have the visual of the money “rising” inside. I think that visual is why the big class jar was used first, right?

LOVE this!!! Great job… I need these for my girls! 🙂
This is such an awesome idea! The one that my son has from the church bookstore was more money than the cost to make all those!
I featured this on my blog today:
I love this idea! I’m a big Dave Ramsey fan & can’t wait to share those ideals with my kids. Thanks for sharing!
