When they want something, find a simple money maker, whether it be a garage sale to get rid of things they don't want or need, or a lemonade stand outside, or selling mistletoe at Christmas, make a project of it with them by offering to make a youtube video of them in their project. When they see how well it goes, and all the feedback from friends and family, they will be motivated to try other things to help expense their own needs.
