Kids can have turns playing the role of shopper and store owner - paying for things and giving change. They can make lists and work out a budget - real life scenarios kid-style.

Make stores with shelves, boxes or dedicate a space for the duration of the game.

You can see how LiEr of ikatbag.com made this cardboard shop here.

Aside from being a whole heap of fun, games involving play money can help children to learn aspects of:

Maths - addition and subtraction basics
Value - perceived value
Marketing - what people want
Retail - customer service


The paper money comes in a four page download in $1, $2, $5 and $10 values. Just print, cut and use.
