With schools closed right now, a lot of you have your future budgeters hanging around at home with you. While you alternate between a color-coded learning schedule (loosely held) and “getting the wiggles out” (17x a day), we wanted to let you know about a new series we’re launching.
We thought it might be a splendid time to launch a video series teaching YNAB kids about money. Our favorite bearded giant Ben and wise-sage money guru Kelly are here to teach, educate, and help your kids learn about this essential life skill.
What: a YNAB video series to teach elementary school-aged kids about money
Where: the YNAB YouTube channel (subscribe to be notified when new videos are posted!)
When: Once a week, every Tuesday
Why: It’s never too early to learn!
What else: Every week, there’s an activity sheet to download, print, and color along with each episode. Plus, a follow-up episode from Hannah where we hear from real kids!
Each video is short—about five minutes each. We’re covering:
- What is money?
- How do we get money?
- 3 things we have money for
- Wants vs Needs
- How do we make a plan for our money?
- Where do we keep our money?
- Why shouldn’t we spend all of our money?
