DIY post box piggy bank for kids from pringles box.

What’s better than teaching out children about saving money and spending it wisely?

Saving money is one of the most important life lessons for every individual. That is why it should be taught from an early age.

My main motto to teach my child is to save first, spend a little and give some charity.

I made this Vintage Post box piggy bank which was very common in India. We can still find some on the streets. This DIY made me nostalgic and emotional too, reminiscing the childhood days. I want to teach my son about my childhood and what my mother taught me while growing up. And this DIY is a good start.
