About Talk With Our Kids About Money

The “Talk With Our Kids About Money” program started out with a simple ask for parents, guardians, and educators to spend one day – Talk With Our Kids About Money Day – focusing on talking to kids and students about money. Over time, TWOKAM has grown with its resources now being used throughout the year.

The program consists of both a Home program and School program. The “Home Program” for parents and guardians, includes resources organized by age range for children from 5 to 18, and focuses on teaching kids about money organically by using common, everyday family activities. For teachers and educators, the “School Program” resources provide complete lesson plans linked to provincial curriculum – easily used and adapted for grades 4-9.

Money Fairs

The most popular part of the Talk With Our Kids About Money program however, has always been Money Fairs. Money Fairs are like Science Fairs, but on a topic about money! Kids choose a money topic that interests them, research it, and then present their findings in a fun and creative way. Kids have a blast and we’re always blown away by just how much they learn about money through working on their project.

Between Covid restrictions, wanting to extend the reach of the students’ amazing work, as well as opening up additional formats and creative possibilities, over the past few years we have transitioned our traditional in-person money fairs to virtual money fairs online with great success.

Below are submissions from some of the top finishers in previous years to help give you a sense of what a great Virtual Money Fair submission looks like:
