☀️ 11 Ways to Teach Kids About Money This Summer

It’s the Summer Holidays! With the lack of summer camps or options to travel abroad this year, parents are perhaps feeling more apprehensive than usual – How will we keep the kids entertained until school starts?! Well, why not use this opportunity to engage the kids with some basic money concepts that will not be only fun, but also create good habits for life? Here’s our top ways to teach kids about money this summer…

Having been praised as ‘’the most important tablet Samsung has released for deal-hunting buyers’’ by trustedreviews.com, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 makes it on our list.  For around £199, you get a full HD screen, 3D surround sound, and good battery life (because remembering to charge a tablet every day can be challenging!)  

But most importantly, it’s child friendly and with a touch of a button, you can switch the tablet to ‘Kids Home’ which is a safe mode tailored for use by children. It also has a separate parent home screen… 

We love this collaboration between Change4Life & Disney that brings you Disney & Pixar inspired games. A fun & easy way to get your kids moving this summer!

Code Kingdoms is a great site where your kids can become a coding ninja. They can learn how to create their own Roblox games!
