Teach kids about money, children and money, how to teach about moneyIf your kids are at the age to start getting an allowance (typically 4-6 years old), you might be in the market for a new “educational” piggy bank that helps teach kids about money.

We’ve looked at a bunch of different banks and this Moonjar Moneybox ranks as one of our faves as it allocates money into three categories:  Save, Spend and Share.

We love that each unit comes apart and the acrylic box comes with a family guidebook to encourage early discussions about money.
