EQUIPMENT: Play money, toys, things, or pictures with price tags
TO PLAY: Sell and purchase the items.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BUY? requires toys--things the child owns or with which the child plays. Determine a cost for each item and then label the items with their prices. Magazines pictures and drawings may also be used.
The adult should purchase an item or some items from the child and pay for the purchase using play money. Roles may with experience be reversed.
If using both pennies and nickels, play should have been preceded at least by SHOW ME (WITH COINS), otherwise, HOW MANY WOULD YOU LIKE? and SHOW ME are sufficient background.
Initial purchases should be of only one item. As experience is gained, more items and/or larger values should be used. Change might be made for purchases made with large coins. FILL IT provides background experience. See SHOW ME (WITH COINS) for suggestions.
