Teaching a 3 and 6-year-old about money may seem like a daunting task that they won’t remember, but even basic money lessons can begin young.
My kids know that money doesn’t grow on trees and that we all have to work for what we have, but does that stop them from wanting everything they see? Nope. LOL
Here are 5 Simple Tips to Teach Young Kids About Money

We love playing with play-doh at our home. But, sometimes my daughter doesn’t want to put it up right away or gets sidetracked with something else and then it completely dries out and gets crumbly after we both forget about it and it sits out too long. Well, instead of tossing it and buying more every time, bring your child’s dried out play-doh back to life! Unfortunately, I don’t have a miracle hack for the poop brown colored play-doh that you see here that happens when your child blends all the colors together after you tell them a million times not to. But if you’re experiencing dry play-doh, try this simple hack.
Although we like to get outdoors when weather permits, we are a TV-loving family.
My daughter may sit in front of it far too often, which I hate to admit, but sometimes mama needs to get stuff done too. She’s at that stage now where she needs me to play with her in order to play, and if I don’t play with her, she’s glued to my hip. Makes getting things done almost impossible.
So if you’re like me and need some new shows for your toddler or preschoolers entertainment, I recommend checking these out.
Since I had my nieces while my sister was in town, I figured taking them to Dizzy Castle would help them run off some energy.
Prices are $5 for ages 0-2, and $10 for ages 3+ which is relatively reasonable considering it’s rainy here 9 months out of the year and they stay dry.
They have tons of tubes, fast-bumpy slides and an area in the middle where you can shoot plastic balls out of air guns, which is fun for the older kids. Tots won’t be able to reach them.
They also have a little area for the 3 and under tots who can’t necessarily roam free around the other play structures. It has a door that prevents them from escaping, which is nice so you don’t have to keep chasing after them. This doesn’t prevent older kids running in there and being rowdy though. I have noticed bigger kids going in there and having no regard for the little’s. This area needs more supervision from the staff.
It would also be nice if they updated some of the ride on play toys in there since they look a little worn out. Surely, they should be able to afford something for that small area.
There’s also rooms you can reserve for birthdays or other events, but they come at a hefty price tag from what I have gathered. It may be worth it if you have a bunch of kids to accommodate, but for the few that I have in my family, we don’t even reach the 12 kids for the group pricing, so I’d essentially be overpaying.
I do like this place though since adults can climb around with their little ones without worrying about them getting stuck or scared at the top. I will be back with my little one for some much needed fun.
Need help with your preschooler/kindergartener in the learning department? I guarantee if you try these out, they’ll be breezing through class in no time. They’re all 3 fun and educational!
I’m glad they added more free options, but I feel like $9.99 would be worth it to unlock everything completely since my niece loves playing around in it.
As the title says, my 3 year old niece thoroughly enjoys it! She loves singing along in the karaoke section and watching the dog be interactive. The farm cards are a nice surprise too! But, you get limited access to each book, so in order for your child to thoroughly enjoy what’s offered in the app, you’d have to pay $9.99 for full access.
Great learning tool for preschoolers
My little niece hasn’t entered preschool yet so this gives her a head start on being able to read and write letters and numbers. I love it! She loves tracing, which she then is able to remember and do it on actual paper. She feels so accomplished and smart with this app. I can’t say greater things about it.
The graphics are great and attention grabbing, which in turn makes the little ones want to play it. It’s the perfect app for those that need a little help steering their preschoolers in the right direction of basic learning. There’s even some fun songs to sing a long to!
