When I created credit cards and play money for my daughter, I showed you a process to inspire and guide you in making your own play money for kids.
This time, I wanted to focus on a project that you could instantly download, print and share with the kids in your life.
Enter this fun Swallowtail Butterfly Bank Checks for Kids project!
After several weeks of Miss Leyba insisting that she should be allowed to write in mama’s checkbook (yes, I’m old fashioned like that and still use one!), I decided she needed a checkbook of her own.
I created these checks with a Swallowtail Butterfly theme and printed out several pages worth (each page has three checks on it). Then I cut the individual checks down to size and stapled the left hand side together to form a book of sorts for her to write her checks in. Easy!
Now my daughter has play money, credit cards, and these bank checks in her own wallet.
Wondering about the “Bank of West County” and butterfly theme?
We live in Western Sonoma County, more commonly known as West County, and we have lots of Pipevine Swallowtail butterflies. (The actual butterfly images on the checks are of a different Swallowtail and come from DK Clip-Art.) The West County theme seemed fitting and a tad bit educational. (We’re all about Everyday Learning in our house!) What kids aren’t into insects?
