Wants and needs according to a 6 year old

Roo takes part in a scheme at her school called ‘Young Enterprises’. The aim is to teach children about all aspects of life. They have a covered about how families can be different.  Today they learnt about money, the value of it and the difference between things we need in life and things which we want.

So when she came home tonight, she started to make a list of what she thinks is a want and what is a need.

Need:
Food & drink
Close (clothes)
Money
Love
Friends
Family
Bed
Light

Want:
Toys
Computer
Colouring
Sweets
Ice cream
Mirror
Fun fair
Christmas tree

Mummy, I think that a fairy is a want because you don’t need a fairy! – Roo
I think she has it pretty much figured out.
