Another Set of Online Games I Enjoy Recently

Online games are my family's favorite bonding activity. With the wide variety of choices we have right now, I get so picky when it comes to the games that I choose my kids to play. To be honest, I prefer the ones where they'll be able to exercise their brains by thinking of techniques on how to solve a certain problem in a game. That way, they're learning and enjoying themselves at the same time. 

I recently found out that the site that I mentioned in my previous post, Mortgage Calculator, has a gaming section which I find so cool. After getting worked up with my financial calculations, it's good to take that part away from my mind for a while and enjoy cool online games which I can finish in just a short amount of time. The games I've tried are nothing complicated, but very interesting so I'm sure that your young ones will surely enjoy them too. 

I asked my daughter to choose which game she wanted to try first and she chose, the Lego City Adventures Build and Protect. This is an interesting one because kids love anything they can build. It's also an added benefit that they learned how tax works and earn revenues by owning properties just by playing this game. It's easy to play because you can read the instructions before playing the game in the section. 







As she progress in playing the game and was able to explore more zones, she was able to use more unique lego pieces which adds to her interest in continuing the game. It's like building a city and learning how to maintain and protect it just like in the real world.


Another game that the adults in our family enjoyed is the Bob and Chainsaw. It's so simple because you just have to click on which side you're going to cut the tree to avoid getting hit by the big trunk. It takes a little practice to master clicking and eye coordination. I didn't know I was playing it for almost an hour because one can easily get hooked on it while trying to concentrate to win.






I'm just happy that we got a lot of options nowadays. In my opinion, it's a good addition to a serious financial site like the Mortgage Calculator. It adds an entertaining side to the other useful functionalities that it offers. It's a great bonding activity you could do while chilling at home, or taking a break in a coffee shop. You should definitely try it.

Keep on Saving to Retire Early and Enjoy Life

Most of the topics of my husband and I's discussions at night before going to sleep are about how we can earn more money so we could achieve our goals early and enjoy every moment we have for the rest of our lives. We also don't want to become a burden to our kids when we grow old, so we plan to have the resources and capabilities to support ourselves when that time comes. 

We've started growing our money by finding different sources of income. We also ventured into investing. One area that we try to focus on now is saving. We figured that we need to fix how we currently use our money to make our plans more effective and fast. It covers a lot of aspects of our daily lives. The simplest is how we save money by choosing where we buy our weekly groceries and planning our weekly food. 

With so many places we've invested in, it is important for us to track them so we know where we are in reaching our goals. However, it's not too easy for me because I'm not an accountant. I'm still new at this. That's the reason why I rely on online tools to make my life easier and my work faster. The best one I've found is SavingsCalculator.org. All I needed to do was input all the numbers that I have and it'll compute what I need to know about my savings. Currently, it uses US Dollars as the default currency, but you could easily convert it and it works just the same. 





The site also contains good reads if you're just starting your savings. Gathering information and making yourself aware is a good start to getting the amount that you want for your future. You can also find calculators related to education and retirement. If you're like me who wants to retire before turning 50 and enjoy traveling while my body is still capable of doing it, you should try this do and create your own tracker.

Like I always say, there's nothing wrong with longing for more money or financial stability. Money is not evil because you can use it to do good things. I wish whoever is reading this could attain financial freedom as soon as possible. That way, there will be a lot of people who will be willing to help those in need too and we can have a better world to live in.

Exploring Culinary Games with my Kids

As a mom, I've always thought of ways to teach my kids about the necessary skills that they have to learn in their lives. That includes basic cooking and growing their finances. My husband travels alone often because of his work so we know that one must learn the basics of cooking so he/she could still eat healthy food even if there's no one to cook for them. Also, learning how to properly spend your money and growing it will help them until they grow old. 

The best way to jump-start teaching them these skills is through the thing that they love most, online games. Through this, they're able to learn and grasp quickly the basic knowledge that they have to know. I found fun Culinary games online which are very accessible and interesting. It's perfect for my little girl who is just starting. She took up Kids Culinary Class in her school and doing the games will help her refresh what she have learned last year. Her favorite is the Pizza Delivery Game because it is her favorite comfort food. She was also very fond of the farming game which is good for her brain to practice and create strategies.






For our son, we've been teaching him about saving money and doing business already. He said he wants to have plenty of money so he could help a lot of people. We asked him to play food-related businesses so he would have the idea of how to run a small business, even if it's just in a game. He was able to try the Coffee Shop and Penguin Cafe games. It was indeed a fun learning experience for him since he was very curious about starting a business at a young age. 





Since we only allow our kids to have screen time for two hours a day, I got very picky with the games that we let them play. This new discovery of mine is something that moms like me would approve of because they learn and enjoy at the same time. The site is very easy to navigate and indeed very child-friendly.
