SMMART MATH: MONEY ACTIVTIES I

MONEY ROLL

Use duct tape to create a tape belt around your child’s waist, but make sure the duct tape is sticky side out. Lay down a tarp on the ground and spread coins all over it. Let your child roll around on the tarp and try to pick up coins on her tape belt. When she stands up, have your child pull off the coins and tell you the name of the coin and how much it is worth. Older children can add up the total value of the coins they collected on their belt.


MONEY SORTING

Gather several types of coins and let your child sort the coins into bowls, muffin tins, or an icecube tray. Older children can use different coin combinations that add up to 50cents, 75 cents or one dollar and place the combinations into the separate sections of the trays.

What a fun idea!! I'm going to have to try the "money belt" with my own girls. We make nature bracelets this way but I never thought of a belt!! Also like the idea of adding price tags to the toys, we were playing "store this AM in our playroom.
