The Classic Moonjar is a tin 3 part Moneybox with removable lids. All moneyboxes come with a family guide to encourage goal setting and discussions and a passbook to track the changes. The lids are also removable and the tin moneybox is very durable. The grandkids love the idea of having their money separated into different parts. The visuals are awesome because it helps to remind them of exactly what their goals are. Not once have I heard "I've changed my mind, I want to go and spend my money now". They love looking at exactly what they are saving for.
The Standard Moonjar is a foldable version of Moneybox. Easy to assemble and add visual reminders of goals and dreams to help children visualize budgets. It aslo comes with a passbook and guide. This is exactly the same as the Classic Moonjar except that it isn't tin but cardboard. Still has all the great benefits.
Noom and RaJ start a Business - The ABC's of Money - A hardcover business book for kids that is perfect for ages 5-12. It teaches them to build a business and comes with a standard Moonjar Moneybox, guide and passbook also. It is like a binder book. I have to say my 7,8 and 9 year old grandchildren really have learned alot from this book. It has lots of valuable lessons to be learned from it and even the younger ones can relate to it because of the pictures and how they are presented.
Conversations to Go is a box filled with big questions to stimulate conversations that get everybody thinking, sharing and talking! It is a game that questions money. One of the questions is: If someone surpirised you with a good amount of money, more than you usually earn or get, what would you do with it? Wow! This is another great product! Not only did the grandkids learn alot from it but I learned some things they already knew that I didn't kow they knew. It was actually funny to listen to some of their answers they gave while answering some of the questions.
Leader's Lesson Plan - This 45-minute lesson plan gives teachers, parents and community members the tools to teach kids about Saving, Spending and Sharing. Fun and educational; making money management accessible and engaging for everyone. This was really great to read through and teach the lessons to the grandkids. It made me think alot about some of my own decisions also. It includes a word search puzzle, dream bubbles, cost of goods page, needs vs. wants and a goal setting page along with many lessons to be taught and learned.
