Today is day 13 of the A-Z Challenge. The half-way point. And maybe, just maybe, this post will signify that I’m back on track and posting on the day they’re supposed to be posted.
We’ll see how it goes.
In honor of today. I’m talking about money.
Kids Travel Journal: M is for Money
An apology for local travelers. I try to make all of the prompts here relatable to both those who travel close to home and those who go to other countries. But, I couldn’t really think of a way to do that with this prompt.
Today is about money. Like, the actual bills and coins. And though both are used for local travel, it’s a stretch to think that kids will be interested in it just because they’re on vacation. I’m sorry. If you have any suggestions for domestic travelers to use the M is for Money prompt (that doesn’t conflict with the C is for Costs) prompt, let me know in the comments. Otherwise, this is a good place to have a continuation of the K is for Keepsakes prompt. Put all the keepsake receipts and price tags here.
Foreign money has always been fun to me. I still remember playing with Japanese yen (with the hole in the middle of some of the coins), or the French franc, Deutschmark, or Dutch guilder when I was growing up. I loved trying to figure out what it was worth, looking at the images, and playing with it.
M is for Money is all about that joy in new (to us) currency.
How to use this prompt in three easy steps.
- Get a few bills and coins of the local currency.
- Draw it in the space provided (either via the download below or in your own journal).
- Note any buildings, people, or phrases and discover what’s important about them that they ended up on the local currency.

Question for the commenters
I know a big part of the A-Z Challenge is meeting other bloggers and leaving comments. So, to help those of you leaving comments, you can either comment on something above or let me know –
What is one of your favorite currencies in terms of design, colors, and quality?
Every day during the challenge I’ll be linking to another participant. Today I introduce…

This is so neat! Thanks for the freebie!
Ah what a fun and interesting post, I can say that when I was in Australia I found their currency amusing, the cents are heavier and bigger than the dollars.

I’ve never been to Australia, but I heard that their currency is kind of plasticy compared to American paper dollars. Is that true?

This would be fun for homeschooling too! I like to teach my kids about other countries.
