Think of it kind of like playing with coins, where you can trade up and down when you get enough smaller coins.
If you went to the bank and got out that much money in pennies, you'd have a whole lot of pennies. And unless you're having a super cheap yard sale or a coin collection, you don't need that.
I just wanted to say we are using McRuffy color math and you really might want to look into it. It uses a lot of games and manipulatives. It does have one work sheet for each lesson, but it is not just a sheet of endless problems. It does graphing, pattern blocks, logic exercises, along with traditional math problems. My DD is not a work book fan, but she really loves this program. The teachers manual is super easy to use too.
