Pay the Bill - FamilyEducation

Pay the Bill

Teach your child about the bill at a restaurant, and you'll help to improve her rounding and addition skills.


  • 5 to 10 minutes


  • The bill for dinner out at a restaurant
  • Money to pay it


The next time you are out to eat, let your child review the bill, count out the money, and pay the bill.


  • Teach your child how to round numbers and help her determine the general amount of the bill before it comes.
  • Let your child help you determine how much to tip.
