More About Magnetic Play Money

Among our range of products is the double-sided magnetic money set. This set of magnetic coins and notes are replicas of real Australian money which provides a real-life example for students. The coins come in 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1, $2, whereas the notes come in $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100.

Using this money along with a calculator cash register, students can try setting up a pretend shop. This is a creative way to learn how to handle money and understand the basics of trade. Otherwise, teachers can stick the magnetic money set to the whiteboard as a visual aid for solving maths problems.

Activity Ideas

Magnetic Magic

Want to use magnetic money with other products? Try out the giant horseshoe magnet to pick up different coins and notes. This is a great way to demonstrate to students how magnetism functions. Check out the bulk magnet kit for a range of different materials to use with the money.

Think Bigger, Spend Bigger

To teach your kids about the basics of trade, try giving them a daily budget of pretend money along with toys. They can assign reasonable value to the toys and then practise trading toys for play money.

Count to it!

In a group, try mixing all different kinds of pretend money into separate piles for each player. On three, every player must sort their notes into piles based on currency and colour. The first person to finish sorting is the winner.
