To celebrate Financial Literacy month, I have gathered 30 activities, one for each day of the month, that you can do with your child or teen to help start them on a path of financial responsibility. Here is the second installment.
Week of April 9th - 15th

April 10th: Allow your child to borrow money from you occasionally. Nothing will teach the value of a dollar better than paying off a debt!
April 11th: Have a family game night. Play games that have money as a theme, such as Monopoly, PayDay, CashFlow or Life.

April 13th: Encourage your child to donate or sell toys that they no longer play with.
April 14th: Allow kids to earn extra money. Although it might be easier for you to do the job yourself, allowing your child to earn money will boost his self-confidence and teach him the value of a dollar.
April 15th: Consider matching or paying interest on money that your child can save.
