5 easy ways to create the savings habit for kids

  1. 1. 5 Easy Ways to Start the Savings Habit in Kids Daniel Britton – The Financial Fairy Tales
  2. 2. Encouraging your child to start saving early in life can form a habit that leads to financial freedom
  3. 3. 1. Set an example – have a jar or money box where you deposit your spare change Even better, use a series of jars, one for saving, one for sharing and one for fun!
  4. 4. 2. Add interest – when your child is old enough to understand the concept of interest, you can act like a bank and top up their savings. This gives a little more incentive to save plus the opportunity to develop some maths skills
  5. 5. 3. Open an account – go with your child to the bank and open a savings account. Then make an occasion about going to deposit.
  6. 6. 4. Save for a purpose – it’s much easier to create an interest in saving (excuse the pun), when there is a strongly desired outcome on the end of it. Label a jar or piggy bank, or attach a picture of what your child is saving up for
  7. 7. 5. Be consistent – For saving to become a habit it must be done regularly and often. By doing something every day, like putting in your loose change, the habit of saving money becomes automatic
