Balancing the budget

The OMSI science museum now has a little section on economics (timely). One of my fave exhibits for the kids was this game of literally balancing the budget. The bag'o'money on the left is fixed income. The blocks on the right are different size/weight and are labelled things like "big house", "small house", "groceries", "eating out", etc.

The twins grokked it super quick. Though they chucked auto payments off in favor of 'buy toys'.

Can't say I haven't done the same!
