A shopping we will go! {homeschool activity}

last week in school the kids learned about Money. How to identify different coins and dollars, and how much they are worth. After I felt they had learned some basics, I set up a little store and they got to go shopping!

Here is a small sample of some of the stuff they could buy

Each child got $2.00 to buy stuff. One dollar in change and one dollar bill (well a fake one anyway).

I set up a table with a makeshift cash register and some grocery bags. But after they purchased their stuff they had a paper bag to keep their goodies in.

Before they could go shopping we reviewed what we had learned.

They had a blast 'buying' stuff. It was great because I could have things cost only 1 cent, 5 cents and 10 cents. What store do you know that you can do that at? I think it was a fun way to practice what they had learned!

this next picture is just because she is cute. She likes this wood toy even though of course she doesn't have a clue what to do with it!
