Loose Change from MindWare


My kids think I am made of money, so I wanted to teach them how things are not free or even cheap and that life cost a whole lot. I had got them each their own piggy bank, and they help around the home to earn money. The next issue was teaching them how to learn what each coin was worth and how it adds up to make dollars. 

I came across the game called Loose Change by MindWare. Which is a kid friendly card game that teaches kids the value of money and how it adds up or disappears. Each Player is dealt a hand of cards that includes nickels, dimes, quarters, and half dollars. The object? Be the first to have a pile of cards add up to exactly one dollar. Be careful, though. If the coin card you play breaks the bank and exceeds the value of one dollar, you go bust. 


My kids had a blast playing this game and what was even better is they were learning while playing. They all were eager to dump their piggy banks to see how many dollars they each could come up with and they even were sharing with one another to complete each other's dollars. I really love this game by MindWare which is a great company that makes other games just like this one.
