Why Money Matters is the first of our Little Experts projects based of non-fiction books for 6 to 9-year-olds published by Farshore.

The project was launched in November 2023 with 15 schools taking part in workshops run by the ootiboo team. We secured funding for 24 more workshop days in 2024 with all available spaces now booked.

In the video above, Chris takes the kids through a Little Experts: Why Money Matters workshop - and they let us know how much they enjoy it!

Our first Little Experts project is based on the book Why Money Matters, a guide to managing money by the fabulous Deborah Meaden.

We have created our very own ootiboo currency – ootibloons – and have designed a fun activity for children to learn about the value of money, need vs want and spend vs save.

It's a great way to bring together STEM and creativity as STEAM.  

With help from co-creators Farshore

Little Experts: Why Money Matters was created in collaboration with children's publishers Farshore - and even better, last November some of the Farshore team assisted with the workshops! The workshop we held at St Peter's Church of England Primary School was lucky enough to have Sarah Bates, Publishing Strategy Director (pictured), on hand to help out!

With help from OakNorth

We are incredibly appreciative of OakNorth's involvement on the project. With their support we were able to reach 15 schools in November 2023 and we will be able to deliver workshops to 24 more schools in 2024. They really understand the value of educating kids from a young age on the importance of financial wisdom and savvy spending decisions. And we are extremely excited to have a real bank logo appearing on our ootibloons!
