Last Monday we ran a Kids Marketplace simulation with 23 kids attending a summer program at Arlington’s Patrick Henry Elementary School. The kids enjoyed chatting with each station’s volunteers, who either coaxed them into spending wisely or into buying more than they needed. Some kids found they could afford multiple pets, while others shared housing to reduce expenses. One kid saved nearly 50% of his doctor’s salary.
