Kids don’t mean to be greedy, they really do not. But this tendency is the perfect opportunity to teach them about character and doubling numbers.
What will your kids choose?
In this activity, kids have to choose between winning $250,000 cash and a penny doubled every day for 31 days.
Most people will choose the $250,000, even adults.
Many people know that $250k is a lot of money and they would rather have that in their hands today, rather than to wait to see what the outcome is after doubling a penny for 31 days. What a fun activity!
This is an excellent lesson in the character quality of delayed gratification.
