Money, money, money, money!

One of the first things we did when we moved here is open up a bank account for L. She got a free piggy bank with the account. Every so often she will do the rounds with it and ask if we have any change. It got so full that we decided to sort all of the change and then roll it so we could take it to the bank.

I couldn't believe how long she stuck with this and filled about six rolls with coins.

The next day we took the bag of change rolls to the bank and L got to deposit them into her account. She knows that this is where we save her money so she can do things like go swimming, take classes and go to school in September. I believe it's never to early to start learning about the value of money and how to spend it wisely.

I so need to get a piggy bank for my daughter. She keeps asking for one. It's great that your daughter was interested in sorting for so long and that she learns about the value of money so early. You are right - it's never too early.
