When did you first start teaching your kids about it? The simple part I mean, this is a penny-1 cent, ect.

I started with my kids just recently.  I don't know why I waited so long to teach my dd, just didn't cross my mind I guess. I bought a game to teach them and they really enjoy it. (They are 6 and 3.)

When my son was 3. He loves counting and sorting money still and he's 5. We have a large jar of coins and several piggy banks. He can play with it all day if he had nothing else to do.

My oldest is 11, so I don't really remember with him. LO is 2. Just yesterday I tried to explain the difference between a five dollar bill and a receipt. She loves getting receipts from the store, and I don't do much with cash. She calls all coins Pennies. I'm trying to explain how they're different too.

If they find something on the ground or whatever, I'll tell them what it is. I don't actively teach them until they are more like 6 or so, though.

She's 4 and we have talked about it and one of her favorite books is Dollars and cents for Harriet

My 2 year old has a piggy bank. He can identify quarters, pennies, and dimes. He confuses nickels with dimes though. I'll probably start with labeling them with their value when he's 3, start teaching him how to count them when he's ready....he likes to dump out the coins & separate them into their size/shape so it's all play based
