Activity summary

For children ages 6 to 7

Will your child celebrate a birthday soon? Why not get him or her involved in organizing the festivities? Planning a party can be a great introductory lesson to teach kids their financial ABCs. At this age, they're already able to make choices based on pre-set budgets. And naturally the interest that they take in their special day serves as a powerful motivator for learning.

With a little help from you, your child will be able to make decisions and rate their success.
