Money Game for Kids
How cute are these little piggy banks? I am obsessed with them. This is such a fun way to help kids learn how to count money and practice counting in general.
If you notice we have two different sheets. One is in color and filled in, the other is black and white and blank. This gives you options of how you want to teach your kid(s). This is a fabulous activity for a math center in the classroom or an individual activity at home.

Start by printing the included printable set. You will see the aforementioned pages as well as pages full of cents. This ranges from 1, 5, 10 and 25.
You’ll see on the colored pages, there are 6 piggy banks that have random coins inside. Kids will count up the amounts of the coins and then find that sum on the grid. They can mark it out. If you have laminated the page, you can have them do so with dry erase markers. They could also use playdough.
With the black and white one, you can add actual coins to the pigs and write whichever numbers you need to in the grids. This can be done on a laminated page and use dry erase markers also.

These two options are super helpful for teaching kids to not only count but count coins. Counting money is a whole different thing because of the different terminology. 25 cents can also be called a quarter. You could add this terminology into the game too. When they are counting, they have to call out what the word name is: penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.

However you want to play, this is a great way to help encourage learning with your children.
