The Piggy Bank: Age Appropriate Tasks

Piggy bank age tasks blog-01.jpgIf you are looking for some tasks that your kiddos can tackle and earn some extra money but are worried that mowing the lawn is too much for a 7-year-old—you should probably check out our latest edition of The Piggy Bank! While we certainly want to encourage young ones to start earning money and establish a foundation of financial literacy we want to help them set attainable goals. By offering them the opportunity to make money by completing age appropriate tasks then you are encouraging their drive to work, building up their self-confidence and creating a foundation for financial education.
