Teaching children about money can be a difficult task.  I think it’s very important at a young age to teach children the value of a dollar. A great resource for kids to save money is with the Designer Piggy Bank by Wikki Stix.

This is not just your typical piggy bank!  The Wikki Stix ceramic piggy bank is a design it your way!  Using Wikki Stix which made of hand-knitting yarn enhanced with a microcrystalline food-grade, non-toxic wax kids can adhere to the piggy bank with just a light fingertip pressure.  The Wikki Stix can easily be applied and re-applied if children would like to change their creation.  Children can be creative and make any designs they want. This is a fun way for children to express themselves while saving money!


 money teaching tips for kids use



1)  Introduce young children to coins first.  From there go over the value of coins and encourage them to save their coins in a piggy bank such as the Wikki Stix Piggy Bank. 


2)  Give children an allowance.  By early elementary age children are able to do more chores to help around the house. Whether or not you tie chores to an allowance, it’s a good idea to get your grade-schooler into the habit of managing his own money. Plus if they earn it it can give children a sense of accomplishment. 


3)  Explain to children when writing a check, using an ATM card or credit card and/or paying by cash.  Kids are very observant and will learn many of their money concepts by watching you and copying your behavior. 


4)  Teach generosity.  I tell my kids all the time that it is better to give than to receive.  My kids give continually to organizations that are kid related such as the Awana program.  Kids can relate to other children so if their is a need I notice how excited my children are to help out other children who are less fortunate. 


5)   Allow children to waste their money and make mistakes with their money. As a mom this is such a hard thing for me to do but it’s a valuable teaching tool. Be ready to step in and help guide them when they need it. 


The Wikki Stix Piggy Bank is a nice big sturdy piggy bank  which gives children a nice bit area to create! Each pig comes with 72 colorful Wikki Stix.  My daughter decorated her piggy bank totally girly. With Wikki Stix earrings, shoes, a headband and a tutu!

  1. All great tips and I love this last look. Stegosaurus Piggy. 🙂 I think teaching kids great habits now *about anything, including money* leads to great lifetime habits.

  2. My seven year old would LOVE that. What a neat idea to inspire some creativity!

  3. What a great way to make savings fun! Great tips as well!

  4. What great tips! I love showing the kids ways to save money!

  5. What a cute decorated piggy bank. My son earns stars which we convert to money. He can do as he pleases with the money he earns but he understands it. He knows he has to save up for things and prioritize what he wants.

  6. Oh how fun.. I love the decorated Piggy, looks like soo much fun and something that would encourage me to save, too. Its never too early to teach kids about money, way to go..great tips thank you for sharing

  7. How fun, to decorate the piggy bank! It is very important to start teaching our children about money while they’re young.

  8. This has to be one of the cutest ideas ever. I am going to get some of these materials and try making one with my kids this summer.

  9. Just when I think I have my son all set on money matters, something else comes up that he doesn’t quite understand. I don’t know if I’m using the best approaches or not. Maybe this is something we can try this fall.

  10. How fun! My son (4yo) is really into saving his money. Unfortunately he sees all money as his money right now. He raided his older brothers bank to fill his up. Think we need an adjustment.

  11. Love the decorations they made! My boys have multiple piggy banks and a lot of them are filled! My husband is a coin collector so they know a lot about saving money… well the collectible ones like morgan dollars and what not haha. We love Wiki Stix! I need to buy more. We went to a restaurant last week and the owner came out and brought the boys Wiki Stix. They were quiet the whole meal and are still playing with it in the van!

  12. Great tips… and super cute piggy bank. 🙂

  13. That is adorable! Great tips too since I have a little one to share them with.

  15. Great way to teach kids the value of money! I love it when they ask questions. This is a great way to prepare them for what lies ahead.

  16. What a cute activity! My kids love piggy banks they fill them up with whatever change they find around the house. This would be a great addition to their collection.

  17. That’s a great way to encourage your little ones about the art of saving. Having a piggy bank they designed would surely encourage it.

  22. ANYTHING that helps kids get excited about saving money is good! Such cute banks, too!

  23. These are really fun, but take it from one who knows: don’t put them on your windows! Oops… I need to watch the kids more closely. Love the piggy bank though!

  24. These are some great tips and the bank is super cute.

  25. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    I love this idea as it is such a great way to teach kids about saving. I love how they can decorate their piggy bank.

  26. You make a good point about letting them learn from their mistakes. I think it’s the painful lessons that teach us the most sometimes.

  27. I would love one of these for my kids! At the moment, they are using an old protein powder container with a coin slot carved into the lid…

  28. Loat is a fantastic activity. Adorable piggy.

  29. This is such a cute idea. Love that you can decorate your own piggy bank, and it’s an awesome intro to money and developing responsibility money habits.

  30. Coolest piggy bank ever! And I really love your tips for teaching kids about money – it’s always surprising to me that kids actually CAN learn these things if we teach them…instead of expecting them not to understand…love it 🙂

  31. My daughter would have so much fun with this project!

  32. I love the tips. I always include discussion and deeds about money with my children. It’s a very important thing.

    I do love this creative piggy bank though, but my kids already have little banks.

  33. What a fun way to start learning about the value of a dollar!

  34. These are cool. I know my daughter would love it.

  35. How fun, I love that they can decorate it themselves. 🙂 Its never to early to start responsible saving habits.

  36. I have a piggy bank all set for my kiddo, though this one looks awesome. My son likes arts and crafts for sure.

  37. Very cute piggy. I am all for the allowance thing but my husband was not given an allowance as a child but he was an easy going child…so I have a feeling we’ll be heavily discussing this topic…

  38. Your piggy bank is very fashionable. It is a great idea to teach kids at a young age the value of saving money. Great tips.

  39. It is great to teach children how to save money. When they have a container they like they enjoy the saving even more.
