Money habits are set by age 7
The My First Nest Egg App gives parents the tools they need to grow their kids into successful adults. The creators are two moms, Nicolle and Annie, who spent hundreds of hours consulting with behavioral and psychological experts about how to instill necessary life skills in children. Using what they learned, they built the My First Nest Egg app for other families searching for an age-appropriate solution to teach financial literacy. My First Nest Egg helps you get your kids to make their beds, put on their own shoes, and get in the car on time while learning that compound interest can make or break financial success.
Motivate your kids to do their chores with a virtual piggy bank backed by science.
Young kids don’t need real money! They lose cash. They’re too young for debit cards. Parents end up buying the things they want on their own cards. But they still need to experience money to understand it.
My First Nest Egg offers an easy way for parents to track children’s virtual funds in three accounts: Save, Spend and Give.
Teach goal setting and perseverance by letting your children earn allowance or rewards!
My First Nest Egg employs a patent-pending puzzle system to teach kids delayed gratification. Your child receives affirming instant gratification with each piece, but learns delayed gratification by waiting for their reward until the puzzle is completed.
Instead of a boring chart, your child’s goal is put into a puzzle, which is then broken into a number of developmentally appropriate pieces. Your child earns their goal, piece by piece.

Parents and Kids Review the App
How My First Nest Egg Has Helped This Family
“The App has been really helpful to show our kids how they can earn their own money to buy the things they want. They understand that money needs to be earned, and it has helped to show them the value of working hard to get what they want. I have also noticed that they take much better care of the items that they buy using their own money earned on the app. Another thing is when they see something they like or really want, and they don’t have enough money to buy it right away, it helps to teach them the value of saving as well as the value of working hard.”

The My First Nest Egg App Incentives Achievement
Achievement and depression are inversely related. Kids NEED to achieve, and My First Nest Egg gives them that opportunity, and recognizes them for those accomplishments. My First Nest Egg has a community page with monthly leaderboards, which track Achievements, Acts of Kindness, and Instances of Saving (not how much, how often). Kids can be inspired by other kids working towards the same lifelong good money habits. Privacy is important to us, so parents who opt-into leaderboards have an opportunity to assign their child a nickname, and pictures are never used.
