Q:

Do you have an suggestions about introducing young children to money? - Money Conscious

A:

All that loose change lying around your home can be used to teach your children about money. Preschoolers can sort the change into stacks of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters to become familiar with the coins and their names. Primary-grade students can learn to count the money by pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. When it is age appropriate, your children will enjoy this guessing game: Hide a variety of coins in your hand, then ask your children to guess what coins are being held by giving them clues. For example, you could say, "I have 16 cents and three coins."
