Fun Ways to Teach Your Kids About Money

Pick out a piggy bank together.
Go to the store with your child and have fun picking out a colorful piggy bank together. This can be a great way to start showing your kid how to save money.

Point out things your child may want to start saving for now.
There may be things you child hasn't thought about yet that they should start saving for now. You can present these things to your child in a fun way. For example, they may want to start saving for things like:

  • First car
  • College
  • First laptop
  • TV
  • Smartphone
Tell them fun stories about how you used your first phone or car.

Teach them entrepreneurship early on.
Teach them responsibility by showing them how to look and apply for jobs. This is clearly a task for kids that are older. You can also inspire them by showing them articles on companies that were started by young people like Facebook for example.

Buy a toy cash register.
For those of you that have younger children, start teaching them about money at a younger age by buying a toy cash register. Have them be the cashier and you be the customer. They can practice counting money and giving you the right change after you make a make-believe purchase.

Buy monopoly.
Remember that saying, "do not pass go, do not collect $200?" That is from the classic board game monopoly. This is a great interactive game you can play with multiple people. Typically you can play with 2-8 players. This game can teach you to count money and purchase properties.
