You're never too young (or too old) to learn about money.
A surprisingly entertaining
If you're looking for the perfect way to start teaching your little ones about the value of money, you have stumbled onto a financial education tool that not only teaches kids about money but doesn't require that you be the expert first!
If you're one of the many parents who say they don't know how to talk to their children about money...and the concepts that will help them be financially successful in life...you're not alone, and...you're in the right place.
You see, since so many of us grownups didn't learn about money and personal finances at school or at home when WE were young, we often find it uncomfortable and challenging to teach children about money...a subject that many of us may not understand or have had success with.
It's one thing to teach your kids how to make a yummy, chocolate chip cookie. It's a completely different matter to teach them about investing in the stock market, buying real estate or starting a business in order to always be in control of their own destiny.
The fact is, just opening up the money conversation makes many parents cringe! But it doesn't have to be this way!
Teaching Children About Money Can Be Easy
We've made it easy for you! All you do is sit down with your children, a box of brighly coloring crayons and our new Financial Wisdom Coloring Book for Kids and Parents and color. It's that easy.
We hope you noticed the word Parent in the title. Why? Because we were thinking of YOU when we designed this powerful financial education tool for kids ages 3-10ish. (Actually, to be honest, we've had quite a few adults get copies for themselves. Evidently some of us big kids still color as a stress-releaser!)
When you use this coloring book, you're not just sitting there watching your children color the playful pictures...you're reading to them and coloring right along with them. Human beings learn best through physical activity, and coloring provides all the necessary pieces to provide a perfect learning environment...fun, movement, color and connection.
Here's how the coloring book is laid out...
On the right side is a playful picture and a financial principle for your child to color.
On the left side you have the explanation of the principle in simple, straight-forward terms so you can easily explain the principle that the child is coloring on the right hand side...AND there's a little picture for YOU to color, too!
The Financial Wisdom Coloring Book for Kids and Parents is NOT your normal, every day, children's coloring book or activity book. THIS unique financial education activity book teaches children the important financial lessons adults often end up learning the hard way.
Financial Lessons like...
...and a whole lot more.
This financial coloring book illustrates 26 Creative Wealth Principles (plus our powerful bonus principle!) in a way that allows you to introduce the subject of money to your child in a fun and colorful way.
If you're like many parents we talk to, you may not know exactly how or what to say to your kids about making, managing or multiplying money. Because so many parents didn't learned about money when they were young, they are often at a loss when it comes to opening up the vitally important money conversation.
Do you believe that parents say that they'd rather talk to their kids about drugs or _ _ _ than money? When we heard this we knew we had to create something different to help you get the conversation going.
why we created the Financial Wisdom Coloring Book
We created this coloring book because no one taught US about money! Most adults take a serious look at their financial situation when they get into their 30s (or later) and we wanted to change this.
We want kids to go INTO young adulthood knowing what to do with their money, not have to recover from their childhoods financially. And we wanted parents to be comfortable and confident when they set out to empower their children with financial information and tools.
This is why we designed the book for both children AND parents. You see, while you and your child are having fun coloring, you will also be learning how to convey the time-honored financial wisdom that will give your child more than just a leg up in life; it will prepare him or her (or them) to eventually live on their own and build the exact life they want to live.
Admirable people throughout history have used these same financial principles and habits to build fortunes while contributing their greatness to the world.
The principles aren't rocket science but if you don't ever learn them, you can't use them to create financial freedom for yourself.
We want you have to have the tools you need to teach your children about saving, investing, donating, being financially responsible...all while living a life they enjoy and you can be proud of.
After all, isn't that what parenting is all about...preparing children to live on their own while we sit back and smile, knowing we did everything we could to create adults who are happy, healthy, wealthy and wise?
Testimonial from a Mom Who Loved The Coloring Book
We wanted to tell you how the coloring book came to be...
Last summer (2009), Steve, being intimately familiar with Elisabeth's Camp Millionaire principles and programs, wanted to help his daughter make (not earn) some money.
Steve had always wanted Creative Wealth to create products for parents to use with younger children and so asked Elisabeth if he could use the principles to create a coloring book.
He then talked to Shayla about doing the drawings in exchange for receiving a percentage of each sale...so she could put money toward her college education. She was delighted with the idea (because she understands the bonus principle!) and started drawing immediately.
In a matter of months, Shayla had finished the drawings, the covers were designed and the project came together in the most beautiful way. We had 'created' a project in the same way we teach kids in Camp Millionaire to be the C.E.O.s of their own lives. Being an entrepreneur is one of the quickest and surest ways to creating wealth and passive income for later.
The response has been terrific and we are all glowing in the difference we now get to make in family's lives.
Kids are never too young to learn financial principles
Money is just a tool to reach your dreams, and help other people reach theirs. The late Jim Rohn often said, "You get what you want in life when you've helped enough people get what they want." This is one of the greatest things we can teach our children. Because the best things that life has to offer usually require a little money, the earlier your teach children about money, the better chance they have living their dreams.

Elisabeth, Steve and Shayla
