Talking about money is something most of us avoid at all costs. However, when it comes to kids, teaching them the basics is very important. You can start as early as you want because there are coin and money games designed for nearly all ages. 

For older kids, you can set up saving jars, give them chores and reward them with money and teach them to plan their spending accordingly. If you start early enough, your kids will develop a better understanding of the value of money and how to use it wisely. Here are a few of our favorite games and hacks from Pinterest.
