Solving problems involving rate (money) for 2nd grade

On Friday, I taught a lesson on problem solving involving rate and the majority of the kids just didn't get it. I feel like they have a good background on what rate is now, but they couldn't seem to apply the skill when they completed practice problems on their own. Does anyone have any ideas for how to teach this concept so they really understand it?

Here is an example of the type of problem they are doing:

Crayons are 3 for 10 cents. How much would 12 crayons cost?

All ideas are greatly appreciated!
