Smart Money Kid - the fun & creative education program for kids aged 6-12

Smart Money Kid — the fun and creative education program is a physical and mental activity workshop that is undertaken purely for enjoyment or amusement in teaching kids about money.

Why Smart Money Kid is fun ...

The facilitators use fun and creative art and craft, interactive fun activities and play approach as the teaching methodology to moderate kids to create memorable impression of good money value and money skills.

This is because kid’s ability to learn and gain knowledge from their surrounding is most effective via fun and creative activities.

Neuroscience research confirms the importance of fun and creative activities for kids in developing their brain's memory ability. It has also been shown that exposure to metaphor and symbols, as used in art, craft, interactive activities and play will have beneficial effect upon the development of the brain.

We strongly believe that Smart Money Kid — the fun and creative education program will readily impress money values in young kids’ minds with play activities, art and craft and will generate reflexive responses via their hearing, visual, kinesthetic and touch senses through activities they see and hear, actions they participate in, art and craft they create.
