gold coins
I brought some plastic gold coins to church the other day and we read through the parable of the talents (Matt. 25:14-30).  The kids played out the roles of the master and the three servants.  They were happy and willing to play along and to pretend that they were receiving something of real value.  The fun wore off a bit however as the story progressed. 
If you remember the tale, Jesus paints a picture of three servants and a master who is departing on a long trip.  The master entrusts some of his wealth to these three servants.  Two of them get to work and end up doubling what was given them.  The last servant buries his master’s money in the ground.
