I would love to say that my kids have escaped the entitled attitude that seems to permeate the world, but they haven’t. They want to be able to buy Legos all the time and when we go to Legoland they expect that they can but at least one souvenir. That’s an expensive habit to keep up and honestly I don’t like that going to Legoland and the experience doesn’t seem to be enough. I’ve decided that its time to stop the madness!
So I created Lego money. It is redeemable for anything Lego. They can use it to purchase Legos or anything at Legoland – including the fair type of games that I am tired of saying no to. I printed up a bunch and laminated it so they can ask to do extra chores like baseboards, blinds, washing cabinets, etc. Anything that is a not normal chore around the house to earn Lego money. Then on our next trip to Legoland the only money that will be spent is money they have earned.
I made three money options:
I felt like I needed more ones so that is why there is a sheet of ones only. I am excited and feel a little more empowered to handle the “I wants” next time we head to Legoland or when they beg me for a new set. This money can be used for so many things! Hope you enjoy it. It is for personal use only.
