Fun Money Games for Kids (free printables)

Saving money is one of the top ten of the most common New Years' resolutions. I've been looking through several surveys and apparently this seems to be a goal for about 30% to 40% of adults living in Europe and North America. And it's a great goal. I want to find ways to spend less too, to be more efficient while grocery shopping and to ramp up my reuse and upcycle efforts. But what about teaching our kids about money management too?

That many people this new year are resolving to be better with money makes total sense because it can be difficult to learn to budget and manage your own finances. But that's exactly why it’s important to keep in mind the benefits of giving your children a strong start with basic money managing skills - which is now made easier with some fun printable money games.

Taking on the task of teaching the necessary money skills to your children can be daunting. However, teaching your kids important money lessons can be easy and fun. Plus, the younger that you instill basic concepts like saving and the value of work, the more likely they are to lead financially stable and successful lives.

There are a few important things to remember when it comes to teaching your children about money. First, that a little goes a long way in the beginning. Simply helping your young child understand that concept of money and transactions is enough to give them a solid foundation to build on later. If they’ve ever been to the store with you, they will probably pick up on a game of shopkeeper much more quickly than you might think.

As your children get older, help them understand the value of money by giving them an allowance for the chores they complete. Assist them when it comes to deciding when and where to spend their money. With guidance, they can learn to save quite a bit!
