Money is something kids start working on early. There are many ways to learn about money. Today I have a really fun task card activity that has also a fine motor activity.
The Fine motor money matching task cards is a great way to learn coins, their amounts and have some fine motor fun.
We have included links to some of the products and resources we have used with this activity. If you purchase via the links we may earn a small commission.
The cards are very simple. There is a card for knowing what colors the coins are. I have them place a coin on the pages to help them remember.
You have 12 task cards that have different colors of circles on them. Each match to a coin. I went with color circles because the dime and the penny are so close in size. I recommend laminating these cards to help them last longer
Then you have a recording worksheet that kids can record the total amount of the coins.
For the activity, you need several quarters. dimes, nickels, and pennies. You can use real coins or fake ones with the set.
How we use these printables
For younger kids, you can just do the coin matching activity. You show them what a quarter, dime, nickel and penny look like on the chart. Then match the coins on the task card. You can talk about the money amount while they are doing it.
For older kids have them match the coins to the cards. This is a great way to sneak in fine motor skills and they don’t think about it.
Then have them record their answers on the worksheet. There are 12 spots to fill in their answers. If you have a child show is struggling you can use the skip counting set cards to help. They have skip counting by 25, 10 and 5. They can help them add up their numbers.
