Celebrating New Year with Kids

Chinese New Year (CNY) is a much anticipated time for children as they receive red packets and pocket money from relatives. Nowadays, with the popularity of electronic money, children are less likely to handle cash, making it harder for children to learn about the value of money.

Supported by the Education Bureau, the Investor and Financial Education Council (IFEC) is pleased to introduce an online CNY game and an array of festive-themed money management worksheets for parents and children. After completing the different challenges, children can also personalise digital red couplets with their photos and send well wishes to their friends and families. Parents can also use the Laisee Money Budget Planner developed by the IFEC to teach children how to wisely utilise and manage their laisee money.

The campaign aims to encourage parents to teach children proper money concepts through fun-filled interactive games, and guide them to save and spend their laisee money wisely so as to cultivate good financial habits.
