Tithing Around the World

I want to give the Lord my tenth, For ev’ry time I do It makes me think of all the gifts He gives to me and you (Children’s Songbook, page 150).

These children have all done extra chores and worked in their neighborhoods to earn money* for gifts for their fathers. Before buying anything, each wants to pay his or her tithing. The amount of money each earned is shown, with a place for the amount of tithing to be paid. Can you find the right amounts on page 47 and cut them out and glue them where they belong?
