CUNAs activity book has CU difference
MADISON, Wis. (3/8/10)--From finding words that begin with the letters “CU” to decoding tips to become a millionaire, kids can play their way through the “Fun With Money” activity book from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The book is geared toward elementary and middle school youth, and it “sneaks in” credit union terminology and savings strategies. “It wasn’t enough for us to put out a dozen activities to keep young minds occupied,” said Joanne Sepich, a director with CUNA’s consumer publishing. “We wanted to introduce the concept of saving at the credit union, as well.” The full-color activity book has word finds, a crossword puzzle, quizzes, a maze, and a credit union mad lib. Threads that position the credit union as the best place to save are woven through the activities, covering such topics as:
* Credit union terminology--members, dividends and share accounts; * Saving terminology--accounts, goals, deposits and withdrawals; and * How savings compound at a credit union.
Designed as a premium for youth who make deposits, “Fun with Money” works as a leave-behind after a school presentation or as entertainment in a credit union branch while adults meet with a loan officer. For more information, use the link.
