My dear hubby started collecting this pennies when he was a young boy. He told our children that they could have the money, if they counted the pennies in the jug. Our 7 and 9 year olds got busy on the task last week! We've been counting and filling coin holders together, and they've counted $12 for their deposit so far. They've really enjoyed the process, and they're getting great bank training!
Giving them a financial education is really important to us, so this fits well into our goals of teaching them to earn, save, give, enjoy and invest their time, talents and treasures.
