Pretending with Money

The girls had a lot of fun exploring their pretend money on one of our recent rainy days. They stacked the coins and bills, put it in their purses, and made trips to the grocery store (pantry) to buy food. They are already forming early concepts about how money is exchanged for goods and services. As they get older, Stan and I plan to teach them about spending wisely, giving generously and saving for the future. There are some really great resources out there.


  1. I love that this play money looks like real money. Where did you get that? They look so serious playing with it. :)

  2. You can find "real" play money in teacher supply stores and catalogs or online. This set came in a math set I got from Judy.
