Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Big Kids

  • You have $100 to spend, but it must be for someone else. Who do you spend it on, and what do you buy with it?

Little Kids

  • If you could buy a present for a friend, what would you buy and for whom?

Follow-up Questions

Big Kids

  • Do you think it’s necessary to spend money to give someone a present? Can you think of a present that doesn’t require money?

Little Kids

  • Imagine all the stores were closed. What’s something you could make or do for your friend as a gift?

Fun Fact

Scientist have found that people who spend time or money on others report feeling up to 42% happier than those who don’t. And studies have shown that spending on others feels better than spending on yourself. When was the last time you did something generous for someone? How did it make you feel?
