Whether it’s birthday party money, chores around the house, or managing an allowance, your kids are probably bring in money long before they ever really know what to do with it. Learning how to manage money at an early age can give you great tools for the future as you take on more responsibility, land a job with consistent income, and learn about simple ideas such as how much you bring in versus how much you spend each month. Enter Piggy Bank Book!
The Piggy Bank Book is a financial planning activity book designed to educate children on how to save for the things that matter most to them. Launching on Kickstarter TODAY, this financial planning book gives kids the tools to manage their money and start to save towards something they really want!
Oftentimes, the boys collect money in a jar and dream big about the things they’d love to purchase! This book gives them the tools to track what they want in real time and see the addition/subtraction for what they purchase. This means the next Target run they will know exactly how much they have to spend on candy, that newest toy, or if they need to skip this trip to save for the big kahuna!
The reason why I love this book is that it’s simple to use and track (not to mention, my boys were hooked when they saw it mentioned Pokemon cards!) What better way to incorporate a love of money matters than to scrimp and save towards their goals for things they would LOVE to have!
Here are some other helpful tips for getting your kids on the money right track from the get go:
1. If you have a goal in mind, get working! Ask grandparents, family, friends, and more for things you might be able to do for them to make money! Don’t be afraid of hard work!
2. Consider selling some items or toys you no longer use as a way to bring in additional income. Ask your mom or dad if they can list on social media for you or help you create a mini garage sale for you to sell your gently used goodies.
3. Think long and hard about what you’d like to purchase! Keep track of potential sale times and if your item might ever be on sale to save even more money!
4. Always remember to check back with the piggy and balance it each week to make sure you didn’t miss any unexpected changes – money you forget to count or expenses you forgot to consider.
5. Dream big! You never know what you might be able to accomplish if you put your mind to it!
