I'm not a proponent of young kids investing in the stock market. But as they get older you can encourage them to think about saving for their future and retirement. Show the older kids stock charts from the past 50-60 years and note the strong upward trend over long periods of time. With 50+ years before they retire, and by starting to save a little bit now, the Compound Interest will kick in big time!
To get smarter in math, kids need good mental math skills. Students who are competent at this skill, can add and subtract numbers easily. For example, to add 4 to 15, they need not to go up by 1's but they can go up by 4's to add in one step. This broadens their imagination power about number sense.
Similarly, kids who are best at counting backward can learn how to subtract numbers easily. For example, if a student knows 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20; now it is very easy for this student to subtract 5 from 50 or any other number. Hence, learning backward counting is a key math skill too.
Money Game, this game enables your kids to improve their math skills by counting money. Being able to count money is a critical skill for both child and adults. The game is done by providing them first with coins. Then you could ask them, "How much do I have if I got 2 coins worth 4 cents each?" You can vary the coins from cents to dollars, pesos or Euros. Surely, your kids will be challenged with this money game.
Do you plan summer outings to nature centers or parks? Take this opportunity to learn about trees or plants. Otherwise, consider having your child help you plant a garden. Get some basic books from the library to help your child understand the basics and get them a little gardening gear for fun. Have them keep a little journal over the summer about what they've learned about each activity. Have them draw pictures or make leaf prints. You can even have them store leaf specimens in little baggies that you can staple to the journal pages. Have them journal about vacations too. With just a little planning, it is easy to incorporate learning into nearly any activity.
Once my son started working a real job and had taxable income, I made him a deal that if he started an IRA with $500 and $50/month, I would match for the first year. After a couple education sessions, he jumped on it! It's a great way to jump-start their retirement savings AND further teach the greatest wonder of the personal finance world: compound interest.
