Money Bags

We got this great game as a Christmas present. Monkey loves to play it.

I highly recommend this game if your kids are learning the value of money.  Coins in particular.

Here's the low down.
You roll the die to see how many spaces you move.  Then you can collect however much it says on that space.  But there is a twist....when you spin the spinner you might land on a coin that you are not able to use when counting out your change.  This is a great way to teach your child about coin value, how to count the coins and how to get the same amount of change using different types of coins.
In the end count up who has the most money, and you win!

Super great visual, hands on thinking game!

The hands on is a great thing for Monkey.  We've played it many times already and he's finally getting used to the coins at a quicker glance, and not getting so tripped up over the quarter and the nickle.  Always fun when you can learn while playing a game! :)
