Dreams of Disney

In just a little over a year we plan to take our first "big" family vacation to Disney.
(Yay!  I've never been!)
By the time we go the kids will be at good age for their first trip there.   


 In preparation for our future trip, we made a Disney savings jar.  Of course it will take several of these jars to fund the trip, but it's just a fun way to start teaching about savings.  It's also a nice visual reminder!  
My little guy is too young, but my ladybug can start learning the concept of saving money and goal setting.



We added some Mickey expressions to mark our progress on filling the jar


I raided my scrapbook stash for sticker letters, trims, and papers.

I thought it was fitting to make the Mickey ears out of pennies.

That is a great idea! My kids wanted everything there and I had to keep telling them it was too expensive! I should have done something like this!
