Sometimes learning new Math skills is only cupcake liner away! This easy game is fun for the kids and is great to teach or reinforce money counting. Adapt it for the age of your children. Older siblings may find this game fun if there is a speed element involved. Add a cupcake to the mix and you have a fun and memorable family activity!
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR THE COUNTING MONEY CUPCAKE LINER GAME:
10-20 Cupcake liners (depending on skill level of the child)
1 Pom pom
Lots of coins
HOW TO PREPARE THE GAME:
Write a money value in the bottom of each cupcake liner.
Arrange the cupcake liners randomly on a table or on the floor.
HOW TO USE:
Have the child sit in front of the cupcake liners and toss the pom pom into them.
When the pom pom lands in a liner, have the child demonstrate the money value written on the bottom of the cupcake liner with the least amount of coins possible.
Remove the pom pom and toss again. (Repeating the same values, will reinforce the coin combinations.)
