Here are two of my favorite ways of giving money to folks - both adults and kids.
For kids, the Money Tree Seeds are quick and easy. They are a great way to get rid of change. They help teach kids the value of saving. And most everyone has the supplies on hand.
For adults or even kids, the folded Money Shirt is a great way to give paper money and still offering that personal touch. I love making these.
Just click on the links. The Money Tree Seeds are my own idea; the money shirt is on another site but it has complete folding instructions and photos.
