Thanks to Chester County Mom, Shannon for this great tip on a new site called Planet Orange.
Planet Orange (http://www.orangekids.com/) is a new kids’ site from ING DIRECT. It’s designed to teach kids in grades 1–6 about money and responsibility (BORING!) in a way that’s engaging, interactive and most important—FUN!
Planet Orange doesn’t just teach about money, it shows kids how money affects their lives—now and as they grow up. It gives them good fundamentals so they can really “get” ideas about finance and responsible money management.
If you haven’t talked to your child about money yet, now’s a great time to have a kitchen table talk about it. You can even use Planet Orange to learn about money together.
