It's never too early to teach kids the importance of saving money, especially with today's economy.
Now two famous kid characters are helping out: Elmo and Cookie Monster.
The Sesame Street characters help preschoolers learn some basic and important lessons about money, perseverance, teamwork and the power of imagination in their live show, "When Elmo Grows Up." It's at the Wachovia Spectrum from March 4 - 8, 2009. Tickets starts at $12. You can call 1-800-298-4200 for more information.
But don't feel like you have to dole out the cash to help your children learn about money and savings. You can do the teaching yourself.
Here are some helpful websites with free information to help you out.
