There are a lot of ways to let kids earn family vacation money for their Star Wars Yoda Bank. Give them extra jobs to complete around the house. Pay a few quarters for unloading the dishwasher or a dollar for vacuuming! Set up a chore chart with jobs and their associated payment. Let them decide what they can do to help.
Money is also a great motivator for completing homework. How about offering a penny per page that they read each night? It's funny how much more exciting it is to read when there is coin involved.
The idea behind the Star Wars Yoda Bank is to help the entire family play a part in making the vacation happen. It makes kids feel like they are important and helpful. It also helps them appreciate the outing even more. Share your ideas in the comments below. Have you ever had your family help with saving for a Disney vacation?
Making the Star Wars Yoda Bank is really easy. Use of the Force is not necessary. Although, we now know that we can all access the Force, no special Jedi heritage needed. That is pretty awesome.
Start by downloading the file and saving it to your computer. You can download the Star Wars Yoda Bank Printable here. You’ll want to print it on card stock or computer paper using color ink.
Use an X-Acto knife to trim around the border of the rectangle slot that is on the square with the text. This hole is for inserting money into the box. The straight blade makes cutting easy.
Next, cut around the entire border of the template. Be careful when you are trimming around Yoda's light saber. It is kind of skinny.
Turn the Star Wars Yoda Bank over so that the printed area is facing down. Then, fold up on all of the black borders and tabs. Give each a good crease.
Use double-sided tape to attach the tabs to the inside of the neighboring section of the template. It should fold into a cube. Press the tab so that it sticks really well. You want the cube to be solid.
Fold Yoda's head "up" at the neck so that his head is poking up from the top of the box.
Your Star Wars Yoda Bank is ready to be filled with money.
