  1. I love these concepts. Strange for me, but I let my one-year-old almost two-year-old put coins in his biggie bank. He can recognize a penny. I’m working on other coins, but by two, I’m hoping he will have it down packed. I realize kids are sponges.

  2. Great post. I especially liked having the home store. I do the good grades one already, although I sometimes end up losing as my son asks for an advance on his good grades payment and he falls short at the end.
    It’s good to teach kids the value of money starting at a young age.

  3. I don’t have children, but I absolutely love the idea of giving kids “fake” money they can use to buy things at home, and to negotiate with siblings….although that can backfire if one sibling is older and wiser than the other.

    One other thing that I do for myself and I think would also be good for kids – whenever I pay with cash and get change, the change goes into a piggy bank (yes, I’m an adult – but it doesn’t make sense to put 30 cents into a bank account). Then at the end of the month I can use the change to buy something for myself that wasn’t in that month’s budget.

    Do you give your kids an allowance?

    1. I do the same thing with my cost. I have a little piggy bank at home as well. No, my kids don’t get an allowance. Their grandparent does give them money, but at home, they have to work for it. We do chores and good behavior at school count too.

  4. this is so true, and love all these concepts. I don’t have kids will have to use all of these when or if I do have kids.
