Fantastic freebies! Computer programs to teach your kids about money using sports


Every day, WalletPop will be bringing you information about a fantastic freebie. Like what you see? Check back tomorrow for more!

The other day I wrote about a fantastic freebie for kids: a violent video game courtesy of Uncle Sam.

On a more positive note, Practical Money Skills for Life -- a Visa-sponsored website devoted to financial literacy education -- is offering a pretty cool looking set of PC "games" designed to get your kids thinking about money in a positive way.

The list includes Financial Football, Financial Football Advanced Edition, and Practical Money Skills for Life, along with student workbook and a teacher's edition.

If you're a teacher, you can order many more copies and, if you're a parent, please forward this to your child's teacher if your school doesn't already have a financial literacy program in place.
