The Coin Game!

How do you teach five- and three-year-olds the coins? I wanted to make it fun for my sons, Tyler and Austin, and so I invented the coin game! Here’s how to play.

I set out a penny, nickle, dime, and quarter before each boy. Then they name them. If they get them right, they keep them. Get them wrong, I keep them! Needless to say, they love the coin game and would play it several times a day if I’d let them!

Now we’re moving on to identifying the coin values: 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents. If they get those right, they get to keep the coins.
