Summer is here and for many, that means entertaining the kids. Those fun activities can start adding up. The time off from school is a great time to start teaching kids of all ages the importance of managing their money. Just like teaching a kid to fish, so they learn the skill for life, teaching your kids to have a good relationship with money, teaches them young the importance of the dollar and how to save. 

Some ways you can do that include:

  1. Food: Set a food budget and plan meals together.
  2. Free Events: Grab the calendar and add all the free events, make it a game to see who can find the most the whole family can enjoy.
  3. Groups: Look to your local community for groups to get together with, places like church, PTO or library.
