You’ve not seen a Piggy Bank like this.  It’s Fun, Smart, Rewarding and Simple!

Over the past 4 weeks, our guest blogger, Will Rainey from Blue Tree Savings, has written a weekly blog about a super important topic, Kids and Money.

Why is it important?

As a rule, money is not taught in schools, so it is up to us, the adults, to teach our kids about money and how to use it – and it’s never been more important.

Digital Financial System

Our financial system is very digitally focused, which means all of us (well, most of us) have magical plastic money cards.  So, our kids do need to understand that those cards aren’t so magical and that you have something to do with the money that comes out of those magical hole-in-the-wall machines.

Ideally, the way for kids to learn about money is to have some, and paying them pocket money (or an allowance) is a great way.  If you can, it’s best to pay pocket money in cash, preferably coins.  This way they can divide their money into spending, saving and perhaps a philanthropic cause.

However, if you’re not that cash focused it’s not always that easy.  So, Will Rainey and his team, have developed a smart digital piggy bank, the Habit Maker.

This smart tool is perfect for giving your kids digital pocket money.  When they want to buy something, you simply pay for it and record it in the tool.

The Smart Piggy Bank

This Smart Piggy Bank also helps your kids learn about the uses of money.  When they record their money in the tool, it is shown as seeds.  They decide how many seeds to spend and how many to plant.

From these seeds they can grow flowers (a goal), bushes (savings) and forests (investing).

Before you know it, kids will start developing an incredible money mindset and form life changing money habits!
