Financial education for kids made easy & fun!

Play Money Talk during Global money week; at home or at school
Posted on March 19, 2021

Catch them young, as the saying goes, is so true for money management. By ensuring that young people from an early age are financially aware and gradually acquire the knowledge, skills, attitude and behaviours necessary to make sound financial decisions, they will ultimately achieve financial well-being and resilience.

The importance of financial education at primary schools is not only endorsed by many academics (e.g. Suiter and Meszaros, 2005). The latest TFI consumer research on financial health also shows that 69% of European consumers also believe that financial health should be taught in schools.

During Global Money Week, organisations around the world will be organising events and sharing news and insights to improve the financial literacy of millions of children and young people. TFI’s contribution to this great initiative is MoneyTalk: a game that gets parents or teachers and kids to talk about money.

MoneyTalk facilitates open and fun conversations with children about the following topics (one a day):

  • Needs vs wants
  • Earning money
  • Borrowing
  • Spending wisely
  • Saving money

So set aside an hour or so each day this week to play MoneyTalk: a fun and interactive game to laugh, learn and play their way to financial understanding.
