Parents & carers - Money Management for Kids

About this online resource

Fun to Save is designed to appeal to the younger user and their parents/ carers.
It will enable you to introduce the concept of money and saving to your child through the easy to play games which will encourage your child to be an independent and confident learner.

While playing the games children will be rewarded with points which can be saved and used to spend in the virtual shop.

As well as games to play there are useful suggestions for activities to do with your child away from the computer.

Junior ISA

On 1 November 2011 the government launched a new savings product called the Junior ISA. Every child under 18 who lives in the UK and does not already hold a Child Trust Fund, can open a Junior ISA. Both products are a great way for families to save for their children’s future. There’s a government website that explains your options further.
