DIY Play Money

Do kids love anything more than play money?  I thought it would be really fun to make some faux coins for St. Patrick's Day.  My kids love them and I love that they were so inexpensive and easy to make.  Isn't it fun that they are specific to St. Patrick's Day?

Here's how I made them.  I got some wooden circles at Hobby Lobby and some Run 'n Buff (I love that stuff).

Just apply a little Rub 'n Buff and well... rub.  I would have used gloves if I had some.  It washes off with soap so I wasn't too worried   A little goes a long way.

I used my silver Sharpie to St. Patrick's-asize  the coins.  My kids loved this part too.

I hope you make your own St. Patrick's Treasure!
