This printable play money template has a myriad of uses that are both fun and educational!
FREE Printable Play Money Template
How great would it be if you could print money? Think about it, no more debt or financial anxiety. Yay! Unfortunately, that’s illegal. Very, very illegal… so I can’t help you with that. What I can help you with is a printable play money template. Sure, these free printable money worksheets won’t help you pay the bills but they do have plenty of fun and educational uses.
Side note: No judgement here, but if you’re thinking about printing money I’m betting you have some financial stressors in your life. Who doesn’t, right? Consider budgeting to help you take control of your finances and feel more confident! Instead of this play money printable, check out this free budget binder or these simple printable budget worksheets.
Now, back to this awesome printable play money template….
On the adult side, you can use this fake money printable in DIY crafts and projects. For example, you could use this play money printable to decorate a scrapbook page or a dream board. You of course could also use this printable play money template to create money to use in a game. For instance, to replace all that monopoly money that keeps going missing. While there are defiantly adult uses for these free printable money worksheets, I think you get the most bang for your buck (haha) with the kiddos.
You can use this fake money printable to make imaginary, role-playing games more fun. For example, if your kiddo likes to play “beauty parlor” these free printable money worksheets may come in handy. Another fun and educational use for a fake money printable is to help teach your child how to count money and make change. Sometimes actually seeing change and handling it (even a play money printable) can make the concept of making change easier to grasp than just looking at numbers on paper.
Looking for more educational printables? You can use this printable alphabet template to help your little one learn his or her letters and how to write.
A final fantastic use for this printable play money template is to pair it with a printable chore chart to make chores a little more fun. Here’s how I’d use these free printable money worksheets with a chore chart:
- Write chores on the chore chart.
- Assign each chore a monetary value. Don’t be afraid to get playful here. For example, maybe a hard tedious chore is worth $100.
- When your kiddo completes a chore pay him or her the designated amount using a printable play money template.
- Have a list of “prizes” that your kiddo can buy with the fake money printables. For example, one prize might be getting an extra hour of screen time. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive or extravagant!
Not only doe this arrangement make chores more like a game, it helps your kiddo learn the value of a dollar.
