Here is a great way to teach kids about money and do some creative playing. We have also done this with a pizza shop. My son’s favorite part is getting the “real” money. He understands much more than my daughter does about money.
We used play doh to make cookies, set up a price list and designated one person to be the customer. My son had fun counting out the money, and getting tips! We set out a money jar and had the customer give the money and the cashier provide the change. We talked about the names of the coins and how much they were worth.
