Play money is also a wonderful reward system for children. When a child deserves a reward, give them play money to let them buy treats, like ice cream, their favorite snack, or an extra half-hour before bedtime. This concept works well both at home and in the classroom.

With play money, children may gain a bit of insight into how the real world works. They may also inadvertently discover their own career goals, as they imagine being bank tellers, grocery clerks, or venture capitalists (Hey, some kids are ahead of the game).

Now, combine the fun of play money with something else children love: Monkeys! What do you get? Monkey Money, also known as Chimp Bucks. Get your very own printable play money Chimp Bucks right here. There’s a one dollar note, a five dollar note, a ten dollar note, a twenty dollar note, and even a hundred dollar note!

Chimp Bucks are also a lot cleaner than real paper money. After all, who knows where those crumpled Washingtons, Lincolns and Hamiltons have been?
