Act out the ways people get money. You may wish to write clues on slips of paper before you start. You and your child can both act and try and guess the answers. If your child has siblings, get them involved as well! Once you have gone through all the ways people earn money you could play by acting out different jobs/chores people might have to earn money or different celebrations where money is given in your home.  

Sample list:

First Round

– Birthdays
– A celebration in your family like: Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid, New Year, Holi, etc.
– Jobs
– Pocket Money
– Chores

Second Round (Use things your child would know or things you do in your own house, this is just an example of things to include):

– Cleaning the bathroom
– Cleaning their room
– Doing laundry
– Mowing the lawn
– Teacher
– Fireman
– Astronaut
– Other celebrations in your home. Does the tooth fairy give money? Do children get money for a Bar Mitzvah or wedding? Etc.
