DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Kids' Bank Checks
It was so tempting to call these cheques instead of checks... But it was an American who originally requested the craft, so I've stuck with their spelling *grin*.
I have added a version of the pretend cheques with the Canadian spelling for all our Canadian viewers.
These are PLAY checks that can be used to help your kids practice writing them out. They can carry them to the store (along with a home made bank book) instead of money. If they wish to purchase an item, they can write mom a check which she'll cash in at their piggy bank when they get home.
Balancing a check book is a good way to practice math skills. I prefer using old check books that you have around to making one, but you certainly could make your own if you prefer.
You can also give your children Kids' Bank checks instead of real money to "spend" on holidays and such. (It's tough enough for grown-ups to safely care for real cash on vacations!)
There are 3 checks per page. Just print them, cut them and fill them out!
