With the play money teach them about the value of a dollar. For example place a $1 fake bill on the table and next to it the various coins that make the $1. They can see that even though there are many more coins that the paper bill, the actual value is not necessarily in the number of items on the table.

Adorable, cute and a must for everyone with small kids!

This is one of the games my friend is playing with her daughter at home. Its quite a clever game,which Ive played at times with them as well. The game is for 2 to 6 players, so the 3 of us have been found often times playing it for fun (and to teach her daughter finances). Also its a great way to spend some quality time with the family.

Also they can learn about getting coins back at shopping and just how much is the rest that they should get back. Basically coins are equally important, and they can teach kids another aspect of finances and money handling than when using paper bills.

Another fun way to teach them about finances is by playing bank – giving them some allowance and charging them lets say 5% interest. Follow that up over time to see how they pay you back and how much money remains to them available.

Play money is such a good teaching tool for home or school.

By playing banking games, you can teach your children that money is good to be exchanged for various goods, such as toys, chocolate and other things they want. But they will have to also learn that sometimes money is just not enough for everything, so counting the coins and paper money is crucial, in making sure that there is enough of it for spending. Learning about the real value of money is one of the most important lessons kids of today can learn.

WOW – thats a lot of printables! Several years ago when I was a lot younger, I taught 13 kids, grades 4 through 12 in a 1 room school house setting (my huge, over-sized dining room complete with 8 ft. chalkboard) and I used a lot of printed play money to teach thriftiness and making change. You cant imagine the number of young folks today that cant make change! I also used it as incentive…give each student a coupon organizer and they got different denominations of play money for things like: getting to class on time, attendance, grades, turning in work each day, etc. At the end of the school year, I purchased several gift items and tagged them with high prices and the kids went to the end of the year auction and bid on them. Kids loved it. Taught them to save money and spend it wisely. Thanks for the time you spent on this lens.

This is pretty cool. I never thought of printing money for them.

Next come the $10 bills. Kids need to have every type of play money that also exist in real life as currency. Here are some of the best places for free printable $10 fake money for your kids to enjoy.

I would think there is a great potential for teaching economics to children especially useful perhaps for home school lessons.

When I was a kid I remember to having played with the very same money type – by this manufacturer exactly. Fond memories. I thought at the time that its just for fun, but little did I know that those kinds of early games would help me greatly later on in life when the real $100 would be just part of my income to put in the bank – or shop with.

I was never really aware of the power of free printable play money until a friend of mine had me around during one of her homeschooling sessions with her daughter. The daughter has a slight physical disability, so its easier for the mom to keep her at home than bring her to school every day and back. Homeschooling makes for some very interesting lessons (she is actually a teacher by craft anyway), and being privy at some of these fun lessons, Ive learned quite a big myself.

I consider this to be information of quality and it appears to be written so as to make the reader think. I like your writing style and appreciate your efforts.
