clever ideas for giving $$

$$ is always a sure bet for teens and college kids!
Here are a few creative presentations...

Dollar Bill Origami
go here for 20 cool ideas!




Last year we made our college age nieces and nephews play
'Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader?'
Correct Answers  = Cash
(determine the amount per correct answer based on the gift amount, you want the game to last awhile) 

Here's a list of questions a stay-at-home dad created.


How about a tissue box that dispenses $$
tape dollar bills together, roll up and insert in your box

Wrap a box of 500 envelopes ~ they'll find their $$ in one of them!

Make an ATM Machine or Tie

Oh I love these ideas. I always give my grandkids money and this would be a fun way to do it. One year I did do money origami but haven't been very creative the last few years.
Thanks for the ideas.

Games are always a hit - especially when they involve money I'm sure!

Fun Ideas! My mother-in-law made bows for each package out of dollar bills one year. Love your creative thinking. I bet the game was a hit!

These are such wonderful ideas--I LOVE that you had your nieces and nephews play Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? As a "game" family, that would be right up everyone's alley.

Thanks for the inspiration!

My kids would totally tear apart every envelope in that box. Love the quiz game idea also for when they are a little older. Thanks for the great ideas!

Such cute ideas, Pam! By the way, I mentioned your lanterns on the blog today. I made mine into teacher gifts!
Merry Christmas!

Ha...this is funny...I'm pretty sure my kids do think money dispenses out of a tissue box...a never ending supply, right? I love the origami, very cute!
