### 5 Fun Piggy Bank Games to Teach Kids About Money

Learning about money at a young age is crucial for kids to develop good financial habits later in life. One way to teach kids about money is to make it fun with piggy bank games. Here are five fun piggy bank games for kids to play:

### Coin Sorting Race

For this game, you will need a pile of coins and two or more piggy banks. Set a timer for one minute and have each player race to sort the coins into their correct piggy bank. The person with the most coins sorted correctly at the end of the minute wins. This game teaches kids the value and worth of each coin.

### Save, Spend, Donate

Divide your child’s allowance or money received as gifts into three categories: save, spend, and donate. Have your child divide the money into the three piggy banks accordingly. This game teaches kids the importance of saving, spending wisely, and giving back to others.

### Needs vs. Wants

In this game, have your child make two piggy banks labeled “wants” and “needs”. Discuss the difference between what is a want versus a need and have your child sort their money into the appropriate piggy bank. This game teaches kids to prioritize and think critically about their spending habits.

### Roll the Dice

Using a pair of dice, assign values to each number rolled. For example, rolling a two may mean putting \$0.25 into the piggy bank, while rolling a six may mean putting \$1 into the piggy bank. Roll the dice and have your child add up the total value to see how much money they earned. This game teaches kids basic math skills and the value of money.

### Money Memory Match

Create cards with pictures of coins or dollar bills on them and mix them up. Flip them over and have your child try to match the values. Each time they make a match, they get to put that amount of money into their piggy bank. This game teaches kids how to recognize and add up the value of different coins and bills.
