One of my kids' favorite things to play with is their play money! Thankfully, they have become masters at adding up bills and coins and making change, but I know this task does not come easily to many kids (and adults, too)! If you are working on coin counting, you'll definitely want to visit Teaching Tykes' TpT shop! Lori has the following really fun money resources:

|Are your students ready for bills AND coins?|
|Or maybe the bundle makes more sense (of course it does! You'll save $!)!|
While you're at it, I highly recommend Melissa and Doug's play money (not an aff link). There is SO much money ($9353, I think!).
This project is always a blast with the little ones, and even better if you have lots of different state quarters! Coin rubbing money tree!
Have kids that aren't quite ready for money math? That's okay, I've got you covered. This will keep any toddler (past the mouthing stage) occupied for hours on end. Save a container with a plastic top. Yogurt containers work well! I found giant coins at the dollar store which were great for tiny hands. My kids always called it "funny money." Cut a slit in the lid. Fill, dump, repeat. Visit the original post for more dump and fill ideas!
