DIY Learning To Save Puzzle For Kids!

DIY Colorful Learn To Save Puzzle

Hey All!

Today, I’m happy to be partnering with ScholarShare to take this opportunity to share my thoughts and a little DIY that will hopefully help you and your kids learn to save. I’m a firm believer in teaching kids how to save from a young age and talking to your kids about saving can be fun! That’s why I made this DIY learning to save puzzle for kids! You can make it easily at home and it will give you and your kids something fun to do while you talk about saving money. Nothing says saving like a cute little piggy bank right? With college tuition rising every year, who knows how much it will be by the time your young kids are about to go to college. It’s so important to start saving now for your kids and to teach them how to save, since you don’t want your child to end up in tons of student loan debt. I have those student loans and it’s not fun! If only I had been taught the value of saving or had parents that knew the value of savings when I was younger. I would not have any student loans today. I’ve made it a point to save for my family and to teach my family the value of saving.

This puzzle can help with making saving fun and it can be made in under 15 minutes. You also don’t need many supplies either! Woot!

First you download and print out the free printable on to you Iron On Transfer Paper. You then use your scissors or a paper cutter to cut the image down to the size of your blank puzzle.

The image is already reversed for you, so when you iron it on to your puzzle, the wording will be facing the correct direction.

DIY Colorful Learn To Save Puzzle Step One

Once you have your image cut to size, turn on your iron to the highest setting. Be sure you are NOT using steam. You then place your iron on piggy bank image on top of your blank puzzle. You then iron from side to side and up and down for about 2 minutes. You want to make sure you iron all the edges and make sure your pressing down as you iron. If you don’t press down as you iron, the image will not stick on to the blank puzzle.

Once you’re finished ironing, let the puzzle cool for 2-3 minutes. You then choose one corner of the iron on sheet and slowly pull it back.
