NuMark Credit Union is hosting a budgeting class for children using M&M candies. Children will go through the steps of creating and managing their own budget! M&M Budgeting is a fun, interactive financial literacy activity designed to teach 6th, 7th and 8th graders budgeting basics. Students will receive a bag of M&Ms, which will be used as their M&M paycheck. Students separate and organize their M&Ms by color. Each color represents a different budget item from which students can spend their money. Once students have their budget completed, they will visit merchants to purchase clothes, snacks, electronics, entertainment, gifts, and other wants and needs. M&M Budgeting allows participants to make mistakes and go through the steps of creating and using a budget in a realistic, but safe, environment.
Seating is limited and open to all. To register, give us a call at 815-729-3211 or fill out the form below.
