Help your children become money-wise at any age with our easy kid-friendly guide to savings.
Keep coin jars. To teach children the value of different coins, let your kids sort your spare change into clear jars according to denomination. Have them do this either daily or weekly, and keep a visible running tally of each jar's total. As amounts increase, show your children the number that represents the total contained in each jar. Now is also a good time to buy each of your kids her own piggy bank to further the notion of savings.
