Money Fries – The Perfect Money Gift Idea

Money Fries Gift Idea

We’re always looking for fun ways to give money to family and friends.  A check is nice, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not very much fun to open.  Especially for a younger person (aka, a kid.)  So when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew it was a keeper.  Come on…. Money Fries!!!!  Genius!

Unfortunately the pin on Pinterest takes you all over the place but not to the actual person who originated the idea.   So I’m not sure who to give credit to.  (I’m change this if I can figure it out.)

My daughter’s friend loves McDonalds.  And when I say loves, I mean LOVES!  So this was perfect!  And thankfully, McDonalds was gracious enough to give us an empty fry container (medium sized) and an empty bag.  Yeah!

We folded up a bunch of one dollar bills.  (We stuck a $5 in there too) and that was it.  How easy is that?!?!
