Back to School, Back to Saving! 8 Fun DIY Piggy Banks

8 DIY piggy bank ideas

Your kids may be getting ready to go back to school this fall, but there are some things they won’t learn in the classroom — like how to save money. It’s never too early to get your kids thinking responsibly about good money management. One of the easiest (and craftiest!) ways I’ve found is with an adorable piggy bank. And what better way to show them how to start saving their pennies than by making a bank instead of buying one?! A great example is this paper piggy bank that they can color, fold, and then start saving right away.

But the fun isn’t only in stocking up on quarters and dimes — DIY piggy banks are just as fun to make, and the perfect way to wind down on a late summer afternoon. Click through the jump to get more crafty piggy bank ideas!
