Piggy bank for the 21st century

How do you teach your children about money as it relates to saving, spending and investing? I normally incorporate money lessons into our day-to-day activities. For instance, my children enjoy shopping at the Dollar Store and when it’s time to checkout I let them checkout individually and give them to cash so they can learn how to listen to find out much they are spending, give the correct amount, receive and check their change, etc.

ekomini Now there is a fun, high-tech, interactive and educational way to teach children about money: Ekomini interactive money box. The money box was designed by educational professionals to promote financial literacy in children. The money box connects to your computer via the USB and provides an entertaining way to virtually keep track of the money they save.

In addition, kids can participate in virtual adventures in Edominiville and learn about saving, spending, donating and investing their money. The product, which is available in the United States and Canada, retails for $39.99. Find out more on the Ekomini site and to purchase.
