Leo is teaching kids about earning, saving and spending money - concepts which are quite difficult for kids to grasp.
Learning Money with Leo is a free app, for parents to use to introduce kids to the concepts and the value of money. (If you don't have access to an iPad, you can also download a printable version of the games.)
Learning Money with Leo teaches kids about money with games, stories, stickers and more!
I first realized that my children had no concept of the value of money when my son lost his first tooth. He took his tooth fairy money and traded it for a used eraser at school. When he returned from school that day he proudly told me what he had done, and I was not happy. He said he simply didn't need the money. At that moment, I knew he didn't have any respect for money, or the value of a dollar, and he certainly didn't know that money just didn't come from a machine inside the bank foyer. Yet, how would he, if I haven't taught him that you have to work hard to make money and then be just as diligent to save it?
Now, teaching my young children about money is easy and fun using Learning Money with Leo.
Meet my two little Fancy-Financiers
I thought it was a fun, yet educational. The kids got so involved with the games that they even had a little tiff over who was playing next. As they played they were collecting reward points which allowed them to make purchases at the sticker shop. I especially liked The Smart Cents Kids read along story, showing kids perfectly the value of saving and smart spending. The girls only needed minimal guidance to navigate around the app.
Learning Money with Leo is an entertaining and interactive way to teach young children about money, and hopefully start them on a lifetime of financial success.
