Financial habits that are so important later in life are instilled and developed during the early childhood years. The way kids save, spend and share later in life is developed long before they earn their first paycheck. To help establish money management for kids, Moonjar offers a variety of educational products and tools. Through a fun and motivating tool kids learn money management skills that will help them throughout life.
The Moonjar money management for kids tool allows children to separate the money they receive into three distinct categories: saving, spending, and sharing. The amount to save can be explained by their goals - that new bike in three months is going to cost “X” dollars, so start to save now. The importance of sharing is often over looked and can often yield significant dividends when instilled at a young age.
“When we teach ‘Save, Spend and Share’ with the same repetition and vigor that we teach “Stop, Look and Listen,” our world will be on its way to financial stability,” said Eulalie Scandiuzzi, founder of Moonjar. “Our award-winning K-5 Moonjar curricula will develop money management for kids whether they are in a traditional classroom, a home school situation or any life skills program.”
One of the best tools for families offered by Moonjar is the Moonjar Moneyboxes. This skill-building kit uses hands-on visual learning to teach Save, Spend and Share. It is the perfect way to get family money conversations going. Moonjar moneyboxes Comes with an easy-to-use lesson plan that helps kids understand wants and needs, budgeting and goal setting. The kit includes leaders’ lesson plan, two standard Moonjar moneyboxes, and money conversations starters as well as How the Moonjar Made book and a Noom and Raj Start a Business book.
