You should also check out sites such as http://alistapart.com, which has
a great article on making navigation bars of out lists:

The only thing I can think to add is a call to #confirm when deleting a
piggy bank, I went to see if you had this in, and accidentally deleted
the wrong piggy bank!  I don't think my kids would be happy if they lost
their piggy bank due to a "bank error" :)

How do the good/bad choices on the kids' side work?  Do they get to
mark their own bad or good choices?
