Monday Meanderings - Money Lessons

I frequently hear people on TV discussing money issues and how Americans do not save. We are a culture of spend, spend, spend. The only way to stop this vicious cycle is to teach our kids about money, saving and living within our means. These can be hard lessons for kids as they see us buying things and assume we can have anything we want.

With President's Day upon us, I can think of no better time to start teaching kids about money. To begin teaching about money, the kids have to learn how to recognize coins and the values of each coin.

First we have The Amazing Mess make a coin collection book with the kids. What a great idea.

After that great idea, The Amazing Mess comes back with a great coin sorting activity.

Next up is Me and Marie with a cute poem to tell the difference between coins.
