Free money templates are available on a number of websites, where you can print play money for students or children.
Here are the following steps to make fake money:
Find a website that has free fake money templates
There are a number of websites that offer free templates. PrintableFakeCash.com is one choice: they have PDFs that you can download with fake 5, 20, and 50-dollar bills. The bills are clearly marked as fakes so that you won’t get in legal trouble. They are to be used for educational and entertainment purposes only.
Get the right paper to print your fake money
Make sure to only use thick paper – preferably gray or white when you’re printing your fake money. If you only have regular paper then that will work too but the thicker paper is the best.
Cut the fake bills
Get a pair of scissors and cut up the bills. To make your fake money look more “real”, you can paste two bills together so that your money is double-sided. Make sure that the denomination is the same on both sides of the bill, though.
Now your child can play with the fake money
Once your bills are finished you can play games with your child and help them with basic math. You can even make small coins help them do more intricate calculations. Try setting up a fake store and selling items around the house or have your child redeem their allowance using the fake money they’ve earned from their chores.
There you have it: a quick and easy activity that will introduce your children to the world of money.
