A game in teams to practice making up amounts of money from standard coin values.
Plastic coins or paper coins made by the Beavers
Children stand in their teams at one end of the room, with their "money". The adult shouts out an item and how much it costs e.g. ice cream 65p. The children, working in the their teams, have to get together coins to that value. They then run to the other end of the room with them and put them down. The first team to do this, with the correct amount, wins that round. The coins are returned to the teams and the game is repeated with different items and amounts.
