Smart Money Teens


This holiday season, open a custodial investment account for your teen (or a Roth IRA if they’re already working!) and help them start building wealth through investing before the year is out.

By starting their investment journey as teens, your kids will have valuable extra years of compound growth!

You can set up a custodial account wherever you invest, though our top choices are Vanguard or Fidelity.

This strategy board game is fun for adults and teens, teaching about stocks, bonds, commodities, and bitcoin and develop money skills!

Designed by financial experts and psychologists to gamify important lessons, it’s fun while applying proven STEM education principles to help your teen learn about the stock market.

For each game sold, the creator donates a meal to Feeding America!

I Will Teach You To Be Rich is my favorite book to gift to teens and young adults! It teaches savvy money habits while allowing the reader to decide what’s important to them and not feel guilt spending on those things.

Many beginner money books are rooted in scarcity (and are thus no fun) but not this book!

Smart Money Pre-Teens

Have a child who’s always looking for more ways to earn money? Help them start their very first business with the CEO Kid course!

Entrepreneurship helps kids learn money skills, self-reliance, creative problem solving, and so much more. 

Taught by the incredible business coach Leah Remillet, this course takes your kids through choosing a business idea, discovering how to fund it, and successfully launching it into the world in an age appropriate way.

Want to raise kids who give back to their communities and the world at large? Find a charity that aligns with the things they love and give a donation in their name.

Our boys love animals – especially sea creatures – so we like to give to the local aquarium in their name! Or “adopt” animals from World Wildlife Foundation, so the kids get a stuffed animal and certificate. The photo is of Henry with his most recent adopted animal that he rescued with his own money.

This book is one of my absolute favorite books for young money masters. It will teach your child how to set goals, budget, earn money through working and entrepreneurship, and how to invest.

What I love about How to Turn $100 into $1,000,000 is that it’s honest and does not underestimate kids’ ability to understand money. While the writing is accessible to middle schoolers, it explains big concepts like compound interest, credit card debt, mutual funds, and how to write a good business plan.

Smart Money Littles

These are my favorite allowance jars for young kids, featuring Save-Spend-Gift tin containers that fit together. They are big enough to hold bills and coins and start to teach kids early budgeting concepts.

We’ve been using Moonjar with our boys since we started allowance and they love them!

Games are one of the best ways to teach almost any concept to kids! The Buy It Right Shopping Game requires setting prices, buying items, making change and more.

It’s fun while reinforcing coin and bill recognition, adding, and making correct change. Perfect for family game night!

This activity set includes realistic bills and coins with games to teach money identification, counting, fine motor skills, and early money math.

Even when your kids aren’t playing the included activities, the bills and coins will make playing store more impactful.

Lemonade in Winter is one of my favorite money books for young kids! It’s an adorable story of trying to start a lemonade and limeade stand in the snow.

It has a great sibling relationship, encourages persistence and problem solving, and is a fun introduction to entrepreneurship.
