When it comes to teaching kids about saving money,and the reasons to save versus the reasons to spend can be boring for everyone involved and kids, they just want to have fun.
Now that Alexander is 6 and is receiving money on a regular basis for birthdays, holidays and the occasional allowance we have started teaching him why it is important to save his money. He likes the idea of saving because then he can buy the latest Power Ranger toys he has his eyes set on.
Thanks to Wikki Stix and their Designer Piggy Bank, you can make the learning process of saving money fun for everyone involved.
