One game my kids had a lot of fun with involved them using playing cards and money to create different amounts. On their turn, they flipped over two cards and made a number with it, such as 57. Then they used coins to figure out how to show that amount in cents. Such a simple idea for a game, but they were totally into it!
We played a lot more games with coins all week and they are now rockstars at counting money! I'm so proud!
