Breaking the Piggy Bank or Banking 101

ages 4-6


Supplies

Your spare change, coin wrappers from the bank (they will give them to you free)

Activity Detail

Sorting, counting, and rolling coins is a great way to teach your child about money. We put all our spare change in my son's piggy bank and then when it's full, my son gets to dump it out and we roll the coins together. First we have him sort the different coins, then put the coins into stacks of 5-10, then we roll the coins. Great fine motor skill builder, too, since it takes dexterity to drop each coin into the coin wrapper. When we're done, we either take the rolled coins to the bank or we let him spend the money on a small item of his choice.
