Money Apps and Websites

Make sure that allowance doesn't go to waste! Encourage kids to get money-savvy with these digital tools either by practicing the mental math involved in making change or saving up for something they want. Being financially smart can also mean understanding how the economy works, how our country spends money, and how to invest.
In addition to spending and saving, talk to kids about giving back. Pick from this list to give kids an education that pays off. For more apps that help kids develop relevant math skills, try these Statistics and Probability Apps, Games, and Websites.
