Money educational toys for kids provide the best of both worlds — fun for now, and lessons that will stay with them into adulthood when they’ll need those important life skills. I’ve got an idea. This year, instead of gifting money to your nieces, nephews, and other kid(dos) your life, why not gift money educational toys […]
Cool piggy banks to help the kiddo in your life get excited about saving money. Heck, they might even accumulate some instead of you finding it crumpled up in their jeans pocket! The piggy bank. It’s kinda the first instrument/tool/resource you can give your kiddo, or your niece, nephew, grandchild, etc. to get them interested […]
Through cash register games like this one, gently introduce some money context to your kid’s world. Start with this game of More Than, Less Than, then have them set their own inventory prices for pretend play. Pricing inventory. It’s something that can make biz owners cringe (ask me how I know!). I mean, we have […]
A toy cash register is awesome for your child to play with. But don’t you want to set up a bit more intentional money play from time-to-time? Let me show you how. Got a shiny new toy cash register for your child and, while they think it’s cool, there’s no real direction from you on […]
Family dinner games that will teach your kid a specific money lesson + have them begging to sit around the table? #MamaWins. Mama Bears? You’re about to reach cool-Mom status. Not only that, but your kids will actually want to sit down to a family meal tonight. Why is that? On my quest to figure […]
Child not listening? Here’s a genius hack I ran across for how to get your kid(dos) to listen – without yelling – when it comes to taking care of their belongings. I know a mom who used to be really frustrated with her son’s lackluster care + enthusiasm for his belongings. She would buy him […]
How to teach kids about money using books + bonus money lessons I’ve added in. Broken down by age. Earlier this year I went through a research project of sorts. I wanted to read tons of children’s books about money to see what materials are out there. But I wanted to take it a step […]

I'm a Certified Financial Education Instructor, and my Superpower is both handling money + teaching others how to do the same. Still, I'm obligated to tell you that I'm not a financial advisor (you can stalk my About page for more about me), and that this site is for information and entertainment purposes only (thank goodness, right? Your kid doesn't need another snooze-fest educational site). The content herein should not be mistaken for professional financial advice. It's highly recommended that you seek advice from a professional for serious financial matters...(pssst: that was a PSA for the parents because your kid is at the lucky age of life where they're not likely going to get into any of those...specifically if they stick around here!).
