Financial Education for Kids that Starts with a Song!

by Team Sammy

Songs Are An Effective Way to Teach Kids About Money

In a world where financial literacy is increasingly crucial, instilling money management skills and money habits in children from a young age is paramount. Yet, traditional methods of financial education often fall short of engaging young minds. That's where the power of music comes in. We strongly ecourage parents, educators, and trainers to take advantage of its magnetic appeal. Teach your children and students about personal finances using songs.

Start by introducing chidren to the Sammy Rabbit money tune titled "Get in the Habit!" It is catchy and memorable. You will know it immediately. If there is any "magic" or a "secret sauce" in financial literacy education it is the song Get in the Habit. It has been field tested and worked with amazing results all over the world. It will instantly stimulate kids interest in thinking and talking about making good money choices. And, its main money message is life transforming when acted upon - get in the habit of saving money.

Then, explore the entire Sammy Rabbit series of money songs.

Incorporating music into financial education makes learning engaging and enjoyable for everyone!
