How do I teach my 3-year old the value of money? I don't. Not yet anyway.
But I can use loose change for an easy fine motor activity and counting coins. My latest home counting lesson with Matthew is counting to 20. So we lay up to 20 coins on a baking tray or any hard flat surface and count them.
Next, we pull out Bill's favorite coin bank and Matthew picks up the coins from the tray and drops them into the bank.
We'll learn to count money and understanding the value of money when he's older.
