teaching children about money


Here is a great twist on a childrens' bank. It is called Learning Cents. I had seen one like it somewhere else, but can't remember where. Anyway, it has a slot for money to spend, money to save, and money to give to charity. I love that last one. What a great way to teach children early about giving away some of what you have, either to those who have less, or to some other cause to make the world a better place. I like that this one has the word for charity in Hebrew, Tzedakah, which actually translates "justice", according to Wikipedia. ;-)I love the multicultural lesson inherent in this bank, as well.
