Exercise 7

Create and Spend Your Own Currency.

In this fun activity, kids will learn what currency is, then create one, and put it to use in their very own store. Label items for sale with price tags, use coupons to make special offers to customers, and fill out a receipt at “check out.”

Open your own store.

Kids can build off of the “Create Your Own Currency” activity and now they can open their own store. Gather items from around the house and label them for sale with the price tags. The coupons let you make special offers to your customers and you can fill out the receipt when it’s time to check out.
