When teaching your littles about money, you can buy plastic coins and paper dollars, but why waste your real money buying fake money?  Any time you can use real-world objects for manipulatives, go for it! Today Daddy and our three-year-old are working with real money to learn about how the values of different bills compare to each other.

In a classroom full of thirty kids, teacher probably isn’t going to bring in enough cash money to do this activity, but whether you home school full-time or just evenings and weekends, take advantage of the opportunity to give your kids real-world experiences.
