A friend of mine made showed me this game last year, and the kids love it!
It’s super easy to make too! Just some popsicle sticks and plastic coins. You can use stickers too – I like the coins because the kids can feel the edges. I used a large “nut” container, and the popsicle sticks fit PERFECTLY inside – you can even put the lid on for storage! Hot glue (or super glue!) the coins on to the sticks. On a couple of the sticks write “Bankrupt. ” Kids sit in a circle and pass the can around – when it is their turn, the child takes one and says the name of the coin (you can also have them say the value). If they are correct, the stick goes in the center, if they are wrong, the stick goes back in the can. If they pull the bankrupt stick, all the sticks go back in the can.
I love it because the kids don’t say “bankrupt” – they always say “bank robbed!” Too cute!
