MONEY game

This is Hatrick's all time favorite game. He learned it last year at preschool. The teacher called it "The Quarter Game". The things you need are a handful of pennies, a couple of nickles, a few dimes and a couple of quarters along with two dice.

Take turns rolling the dice. Whatever number you roll- take that many pennies. Pennies can be traded in for nickles, nickles into dimes and on up to a quarter.

We played the game one time- and it went by so fast- that we changed it to "Dollar Game".

Like I said- we learned this game a year ago! He was just a preschooler. It's funny how money motivates boys to do math.

My older boys like to play it too- except they always try to add the rule, "you keep whatever money you earn". :0) I have to give them credit for trying..
But no- we don't play that way.

I just keep the change in the bag with the dice so it's all together ready to play. It a fun game. Fast paced.
