I think we can all agree it’s never too early to teach your kids about the importance of saving money! The key, I have found, to getting your kids to really pay attention to this lesson is to make it fun.
For example, ever since we got my son a GIANT porcelain pig bank, he’s been on a constant hunt for loose change so he can make a deposit. It’s amazing the amount of excitement a single penny can stir up in a 3 year old. This has inspired me to see just what other fun “banks” are out there.
Guluck.com allows kids to do their “banking” online. Friends and family can even send money directly to their bank for birthdays, holidays, etc. So fun!
Kelleys Paper Crafts has a really cute selection of personalized wooden banks. They make such a great gift!
