Printable Family Budget Card Sorting Game for Kids

Children often want to spend all their money on things that excite and entertain them. However, not all our money can be spent on toys, candy, or fun things. This is because we need to be able to budget. This card game will help children to see how they need to take into account cards that represent income (the family budget) and cards that represent expenses (what the money is spent on) to help them understand how money needs to be wisely used.

The below cards represent the income that goes into the family budget and things that it gets spent on!

Income and expense cards

Mom's salary

Dad's salary

Grandparent's retirement benefits

Government benefits and scholarships

***

Housing

Childcare

Transportation and car repairs

Toys and books

Doctors and medicine

Telephone and internet

Household goods and cleaning supplies

Food and groceries

Vacation expenses

Shoes and clothes

How to use the cards

Children can sort the cards into a pile of ones that represent income and ones that represent expenses. Then, the kids can see how even if they like toys and books, that is only one expense of many to take into account depending on how much income they may have. This imparts an important lesson about budgeting!
