Biggar kids to receive Financial Literacy in fun and engaging environment

Payday Playday will give kids and their parents a fun, engaging evening, learning how to work with and save their hard-earned money.
Put on by West Central Literacy Committee, the kids and parents work as a team, rotating through many different activity stations, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
West Central Literacy will partner with the Biggar Family Centre for the event for the free event, which has been in Rosetown, Kindersley, Unity and Beechy.
READ Saskatoon will host a table at the entrance to the event, handing out “passports” for the kids and their parents. Some of the stations will include “Let’s Go Shopping” where kids pick grocery items for snacks for one week with a budget in mind. A “Coin and Country Challenge” has kids trying to match the numbered country to the correct flags and currency.
Kids will also answer questions about a career, challenged to draw a picture of themselves in their dream career. A giant puzzle of different careers, take turns removing blocks from a wooden tower trying to answer questions about credit, spending and saving games, coin counts, a duct tape wallet, advertising adventures, a RESP challenge, Tic Tac Take your money to the bank, and a Green Pursuit.
Payday Playday is this Monday, February 24 at Biggar Central School 2000 from 6 t 7:30 p.m.
