Coin War is like the classic card game War, but with coin values in place of card suits and numbers. This game helps children recognize coin amounts, practice counting money, and compare coin values.

COPFCU Coin Bingo is a fun and interactive way for kids to practice identifying coin values and counting coins up to $1.00 (penny, nickel, dime and quarter). It’s played just like traditional bingo, but the caller calls out an money amount and kids must search their photo-illustrated game cards for the corresponding coin combination. This free download includes 10 unique bingo cards and bingo calling cards.
This game practices coin values and counting skills. To play, arrange different coin amounts in the shape of a caterpillar. Children will count up the value of each caterpillar and fill in the total amount of the coins. You could also reverse the game by filling out the caterpillar amount the and ask your child to arrange the corresponding coin values.
Fair Not Fair Game
This game practices coin values and counting skills and doesn’t require any special equipment. To play, give each person a pile of coins. The first person suggests a trade, and the next person must decide if the trade is fair or not fair. For example, the first person might ask to trade two dimes and a nickel for a quarter, which is a fair trade. But asking to trade four dimes for two quarters is NOT a fair trade.
