Some sites have games and lessons for children on saving money, making money, giving it to charity and spending it wisely. Other websites have advice for parents on allowances, and ways you can help your teens and younger children build money management skills. For teachers there are money-oriented lesson plans and even a financial literacy curriculum.
Here are reviews of a few of these websites. You'll find reviews of more websites and other resources on my page, How to Teach Kids About Money. I have an extensive listing of more than 50 sites at LearningReviews.com Money & Finances. Several websites listed there also have interactives to help younger children learn to count money.
U.S. Bancorp launched an interactive game to help high school students navigate the intricacies of wages, taxes, saving and debt management, Escape from Knab, the Adventure.
Kids acquire money for a ticket back from planet Knab by making decisions about earnings, savings, investments and expenditures during their stay. In this game, teens apply key concepts and skills, such as W-4 withholding taxes, check writing, unemployment rate, gross income, budgeting, direct deposit, savings, interest, credit card management, and loan payments.
Teaching kids about money can be a daunting and frustrating task. But you'll find lots of assistance online.
