More About Play Money Notes

Our notes include the currencies of $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 which can be bought in a range of colours. If you are looking to buy bulk, have a go at using our massive coins and notes tray which comes with individual compartments for each currency.

In the classroom, play notes can be used alongside the calculator cash register to set up a pretend shop. This encourages children to think creatively, use clear communication skills, and have fun when applying maths. 

Activity Ideas

Think Bigger, Spend Bigger

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

Count to it!

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

Fraction Action

The notes are a great way to ask fraction-related questions. For example, what is 20% of this $80 note? When setting up a pretend shop, students can apply discounts to products as a way of incorporating fractions into the game.
