Parents have your kids read the lyrics to the Sammy Rabbit money song titled, Budget!

Music is a fun, easy and time efficient way to talk to and teach kids about money! It is also a Sammyriffic way to celebrate great money habits. Music and singing bring joy and energy to the money lesson learning process.

7 Step Money Lesson for Kids Who Like Music

Here are seven simple steps that will have parents, teachers and trainers talking to and teaching young kids about money and making it a habit to Budget!

Step 1. Read Song Lyrics Together




A budget is a money plan

Tells you where and when

Your money's coming in

Tells you where and when

Your money is going out

Keeps you from spinning round and round

Shows you just how your money flows

And where your money goes


You add it up, you subtract it down

In and out, up and down

That's what a budget's is all about

Answers all your

Who, what, when, where's and why's

GiveS you the 4-1-1

Doesn't tell a lie

Let's you know if you are ahead or behind

Keeps worries from your mind

Free from money binds

In and out, up and down

That's what a budget's is all about



Let's not debate, let's talk straight

A budget backs you up

Same as a measuring cup

Keeps you out of quick sand

On the road to the promised land

Gives you the time and date

Of everything you spend

Everything you planned

It's just a chart that let's you know

How your money flows, where your money goes

You will stay out of the hole,

So you stay in control

So you have plenty of money to rock and roll


Step 2. Listen to the Song

Now listen to the song Budget together. Listen as many times as you like!

Step 3. Discuss Song

The song lyrics share beginning ideas and call attention to the importance of having a budget and plan for your money. Have a discussion with your child, children or students about the song. Ask them what lyrics from the song they like the most and why.

For example, I love the lyrics:

"... a budget is a money plan ..."

"... keeps worries from your mind ..."

"... you will stay out of the hole, so you stay in control ..."

Step 4. Activities

If you are a premimun Sammy Rabbit Money School member, have your child, children or students complete one or all of the activities that accompany the song Budget.

If you are not a premium School member, join. This is a wonderful way to support Sammy's mission to bring financial literacy education to kids and families across the world.

If you are Free member, listen to more music from Sammy's Song Series. And keep having discussions with your parents and teachers about the money habits shared in the songs.

Step 5. Review and Discuss Activities

After your child, children or students has completed the activities for the song Budget, review and discuss them together.

Step 6. Deposits

Applied knowledge is powerful and life transforming.

  • Give your child or children opportunities to earn and save money.

  • Make a deposit with your child or children into a piggy bank, savings jar or into a savings account at the financial institution of your choice. Get them in the habits of earning, saving and budgeting money. You can start with a first simple budget. Small steps work. Oh yes!

  • Have your child deposit the activities they complete into their Dream Big Journal!
