Kids Travel Journal: C is for Costs
If you aren’t into finance this could seem like a boring prompt. You’re wrong. 🙂 This is a fun prompt that will continue to entertain.
Think of it this way. If you keep this journal for a while, your child will be able to look back on it when they’re older and think: “I can’t believe how cheap things used to be!”
Or maybe they can compare the prices of things back home to where they vacation.
Using this prompt will vary depending on your kid’s age. Here are some suggestions:
The littlest journaler may just want to play with the different money. C is for Currency. Or maybe they want to put a check mark to signify each dollar/euro/yen/pound/peso something costs. C is for Check Mark.
As they get older they can delve deeper. They can track local currency prices and calculate what that is in their home currency. C is for Calculating Currency Exchange.
For today’s printable, I have a sheet for kids to write down the prices of various things that are going to be purchased while on a vacation. Use one sheet to keep track of random expenses, make one per day, or make one per person. There’s enough space to keep track in whichever way suits them most.

Question for the commenters
I know a big part of the A-Z Challenge is meeting other bloggers and leaving comments. So, to help those of you leaving comments, you can either comment on something above or let me know –
Where have you travelled that had surprisingly low prices compared to what you thought they would be? Or where have you travelled that was much more expensive than you planned?
Every day during the challenge I’ll be linking to another participant. Today’s lucky participant is…
Making Life an Art who is writing about her journey to getting a driver’s license in Britain as an expat. This is particularly close to my heart as I suffered many of the same challenges attempting to get my license when I lived in Germany… I never ended up doing it the 5 years I lived there!
By the way, I’m currently away from internet spending Spring Break with my family. If I don’t get back to you when you leave a comment, I will definitely respond and visit you when I get back. Tuesday at the latest. Thanks for visiting, please come back because I do have a fun post scheduled for tomorrow. And by fun I mean another prompt for a kids’ travel journal and an even more incredibly awesome download.
That’s so interesting. The printable idea is really good. Nice to know your blog 🙂
Thank you so much!
we keep a record of our costs, but didn’t think to make a record for the little ones. We are also participating in the AtoZ challenge showing all kind of kids friendly activities in our province.
Thanks for stopping by! I linked to your site on my D is for Dining Out post.
I love this idea! What a fantastic way to interpret this challenge! Looking forward to completing this journal with you!
Thank you! and I look forward in participating in some of your organization ideas. I know better than to think I can do all of them daily and keep up with this site.
