Financial Education for Families

During this time, we realize it may be difficult to keep on the right track with education from home. So we're pulling together a bunch of resources from around the web as well as designing our own interactive educational opportunities for all ages. Stay safe, stay home and have some fun while teaching yourself and your families all about finances.

 

Making Finances Fun for ages 8 and under

Who said financial education has to be boring? At Cedar Point, we believe that learning how to manage finances should start at a young age. Here are some fun activities to families to try with the youngest members of the family.

Play Peter Pig's Money Counter

Learning about money is fun with Peter Pig. In this interactive game, kids practice identifying, counting and saving money while learning fun facts about U.S. currency. After completing the game, players are rewarded with a trip to the virtual store to buy accessories within budget and dress up Peter Pig in fun scenes.

Activities for youngsters


Junior BuckBelow we have a few more activities for the young and the young at heart.  There is a coloring book, a game and some "fun money".

Junior is our Youth Account mascot. Junior and his family are lighthouse keepers. Through his duties at the lighthouse, Junior learns all about responsibility and accountability. As a "keeper" he is also a "saver", and he'll help us teach our youngest members about the importance of saving and social responsibility.

Activities for Teens

Checking for TeensWhen you're a teenager, that's when you really have the opportunity to bring in more than just pocket change. Once you have more than a few dollars to keep track of, it's probably time to open a checking account.

That’s because putting money into an account can help you monitor your spending and teach you some valuable financial lessons, including:

  • How to regularly track your spending.
  • How to make deposits.
  • How to budget your money.
  • And how to use a debit card for purchases and withdrawals.

Everything you do at this age is likely to be a new experience, but learning how to manage your money today will pay off in the long run. Watch the video or read the article to learn more.

Below we have a few activities designed just for for teenagers. Keep checking back for more updates!

Budgeting is smart at any age. Check out our packet to learn more.
