Cleaning Old Coins

ages 3-6


Old coins, soft toothbrush, bowl of water, dishwashing soap, paper towels

Activity Detail

Have your child clean old coins to make them sparkle again. Fill a bowl with a small amount of soapy water and place a few coins in the bowl. Your child will have fun brushing the coins with a toothbrush to make them look brand new. When the coins are as clean as your child can make them, dry them with a paper towel.

My son collects the state quarters and this would be a good idea to do before placing the quarters in the collection.

For really dirty coins, try olive oil or white vinegar.
