Have Fun with Money Worksheets
Money worksheets for kids are great learning tools for future savvy savers! Make learning about money with money worksheets even more fun with these handy tips:
- Before your child begins his money worksheets, go to the bank and withdraw a roll of each pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters.
- Use real life money to introduce your child to the different kinds of currency. Have your child line up the coins from smallest to biggest. Is the biggest coin worth the most money? What about the smallest coin? Ask your child to see if this pattern applies to all of the coins. Have your child look at each coin carefully and tell you how much it is worth. Lay the coins out on a piece of paper and have your child write their values underneath.
- Take out a couple of money worksheets and have your child work through the problems using real coins. This adds to the fun of learning about money, and is also a great exercise for kids who learn through sensory play.
- If you'd like to give your child a special reward for completing his money worksheets, tell him he can keep the number of coins that he needed to work through the problems. Or, set up a miniature 'store' in your living room using small toys or tasty treats that your child can buy using the coins from his worksheet practice. He'll get a nice surprise, and learn about currency at the same time!
