Jenny’s Picks – April 27th

When I was quite young, my grandfather explained the individual values of coins and dollar bills. The lesson ended with me getting to keep cash money, and that, my friends, was the beginning of my financial literacy lessons. Some further lessons came from my mom, and the rest, including difficult learning experiences regarding credit card debt, came from the mean streets of life. Ensure that your little ones get a few more lessons in money at kidscommons, 309 Washington St., Columbus, during the museum’s  Financial Literacy Week programming during museum hours April 27 and 28. The days will feature games and activities. Information: 812-378-3046.
