Use your imagination to invent and design a new currency.
Step 1: First, plan the design of different bills, such as $1, $5, and $10. Create a design using a similar picture or theme on each bill.
Step 2: Draw each bill on the paper, being sure to include the dollar amount on each. If you have access to a copy machine, draw one of each bill and make multiple copies. If you don’t, make the design simple and draw several of the same on each piece of paper.
Step 3: Cut out the currency and use it to play games, such as Monopoly or Life, with your friends and family.
