The purpose of this article is to explain how preschool children make decision about the distribution of resources. Research type is Qualitative. Sampling method is convenience. We used Semi-structured interview regulated by the researcher, including pictures and short-stories. Data analysis method was interpretation. Findings and results show that preschool children's conception of distributive justice is not the same. The decision made by the child is the consequence of the resultant of different factors including education, self-interest and factors the child has. The major factors children have are need, attributes of recipients, relations and work done. Self-benefit and what is to be distributed also affect the decision child makes. Children follow a variety of goals in distribution including spreading happiness and friendship, meeting people need, motivating and rewarding. The other result is that children theoretical perspective is in some cases different from their performance and self-benefit is a chief factor that makes this difference.
