Giving your children financial education puts them on the path to becoming financially independent. You are not required to sit them down and lecture them on how they ought to handle their money, though. Your children will learn skills more quickly and easily if you are pragmatic. Life skills are better learned by children under the age of five when the process is enjoyable and interesting. Thus, we intend to provide this instructional tool for primary school students under the age of twelve. The products are based on game boards and incorporate elements of snake check to make learning about financial planning for the future more entertaining. We incorporate financial decision-making and budgeting questions into the game board, requiring players to consider their options before deciding whether or not to invest in the game's "power elements." Children often overspend on what they want because of their insatiable desire. This explains why kids still struggle with saving money. Our objectives are to help students consistently save money, expose them to saving habits early on, and help them make sensible financial decisions. This product's uniqueness lies in its incorporation of digital technology into typical board games, with a focus on enhancing children's cognitive abilities in financial management, particularly in the domains of expenditure and savings. In this interactive game, kids practice identifying, counting and saving money while learning in a fun mood. Our games help youngsters become more financially literate, motivate them to save for the future, and develop critical thinking skills related to money management. As we work to instill the habit of saving in kids, we also want them to have this MoneyHike product so they may educate their friends and family members who are around their age on the benefits of saving.
