What You Need
- Set of coins (one of each: penny, nickel, dime, quarter) for each player
- Piggy bank gameboard (instructions follow) for each player
- Spinner (instructions follow)
- paper plate or 8" or larger cardboard circle
- brass paper fastener
- paper clip
What to Make
- Piggy bank gameboards: print piggy bank pictures on heavy paper (I use pink cardstock) and cut out.
- Spinner: Take your pen or marker and divide a paper plate or cardboard circle into 5 pie-shaped sections. Label the sections 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, and draw a piggy face in one section. Make a small hole in the middle of the paper plate (I use the tip of a pencil), put the paper fastener through one end of the paper clip and fasten through the hole in the paper plate.
What to Do
The first player spins the spinner. If the spinner lands on a money section, the player takes the coin matching the money value and puts it in his/her piggy bank. Then the next player takes a turn, and so on. At any time, if the spinner lands on the piggy face section, the player whose turn it is says "oink, oink, oink" and takes all the coins out of his/her piggy bank. The first player to get all of his/her coins into his/her piggy bank is the winner.
For a greater challenge, give each player 2 sets of coins.
