Printable Play Money Activities

What can you do with printable play money?

Counting Games

Using play money for counting games is a great activity for kids.   Kids can mix and match or swap colors back and forth, then count what they have in their hands.  They can also use it to help solve simple addition and subtraction problems to make math homework a little more interesting.

Privilege Dollars

Kids can earn these dollars when doing chores or exhibiting positive behaviors that parents are trying to reinforce.  After this play money is earned, they can redeem them for extra privileges, or little prizes.

Pretend Shopping

Kids can take turns being the shopper and cashier for this activity.  The shopper learns to pay for their goods with their printable play money and stay within their budget.  The cashier learns how to add prices and make change when needed.

Yes, You Can Make Your Own Play Money

Would you like to create your own printable play money?  Or help your kids make some?  Its simple, fun, and can be addicting.  All you need is editing software for your computer like adobe photo shop and you are good to go.  Currently, I am using my old Microsoft Digital Image Suite program and that works fine as well. 

When designing your own play money, you are basically working with shapes.  Start with a basic rectangle and then get creative as you add more shapes and colors.  It won't take long and you will have your own play money to print.

A Tip For Getting More Bang For Your Pretend Bucks

If you want to make sure your printable money can withstand a bit of wear and tear so that you won't be printing and reprinting often, you can cover the dollars with contact paper or laminate them.

I use contact paper on both sides and then cut around the dollars.  This makes them a little thicker and protects them from ripping.  It will not protect them from water damage as the water will seep in where the paper comes together so if you want a better seal, laminating your printable play money works better.
