More Fun than Monopoly

Avon's calling...and that's great for home schooling

"As part of their home schooling education, Marie Sanders thought up a creative way to teach her children about business by getting them to participate in every aspect of selling Avon beauty products.

From answering the phone and taking orders to calculating customers' bills, Ms Sanders says she is teaching her children a number of valuable skills they'll need to succeed, both in a classroom setting and in the real world.

She explains that having the children actively involved in selling Avon teaches them math skills, like addition and subtraction, as well as reading and writing."
