Money Matters for Kids: Teaching Kids to be Financially Savvy with their money.
Girls In Action's Outreach Needs
- We need empty jars (NEW/NUSED/USED) so we can give them to the GIAgirls when we teach them the importance of saving and how to keep a saving journal. If you have any jars or would like to purchase some jars and send them to us, please reach me via my Inbox or email@example.com ~ Thanks in advance for your support.
The purpose of the jars and/or shoeboxes will teach money management skills and the right way to save and establish an emergency fund. It will be fun for them to watch as their pile of change grows and it will help keep them motivated with a positive money saving attitude.
Teach them while they are young so when they are old this great habit will not stray.
They will label their bottles with whatever they plan to save or have a habit of buying.
For example, instead of buying the lollipop for 25cents or the lipgloss for $2, they will place the money in their jar, and write a note in their money journal indicating that they did not buy the lollipop for $2.00 and I really like that color. Great job that I save $2.00, I am getting closer to my goal of buying my new dress or saving for college. It is never too early or too late to start saving

Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC
Department of the Treasury
Watch real money being printed at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC! This is a fun tour for all ages. You will see how U. S. paper currency is printed, stacked, cut and examined for defects. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing also prints White House invitations, Treasury securities, identification cards, naturalization certificates, and other special security documents.
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing does not produce coins. Coins are produced by the United States Mint. (Although the headquarters to the Mint are in Washington, DC, the production facilities are located in Philadelphia and Denver and tours of the Mint are given in those cities.)
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing was established in 1862. At that time, just six people separated and sealed notes by hand in the basement of the Treasury building. The Bureau moved to its current location just off of the National Mall
in 1914. To keep up with the increase in demand, a second production location was set up in Fort Worth, Texas in 1991.
