Instead of P = IV to explain, it might be easier to explain using P = I^2R when the components are connected in series where current I is constant. Hence power P is directly proportional to R. The bigger the R, the more power it uses.

Likewise, if the components are connected in parallel, it will be easier to use P = V^2/R, as the potential difference is constant for the components connected in parallel. Hence, power P is inversely proportional to R. The smaller the R, the more power it uses.
