Garage Sales For Children

 

 

Garage sales can be a great teaching aid for parents to help children learn math and other sales skills.

When planning a garage sale have children from about age 7 or 8 help plan the garage sale and work at the garage sale. The child can receive all profits from items they sell, a set amount of prearranged salary, or any other agreed upon payment.

By taking money from customers and counting back change the child will learn a valuable lesson in managing simple money exchange in a business.
