Making a Piggy Bank
Coffee can with lid, pink felt, markers, glue, scissors
Make a piggy bank out of an empty coffee can. Begin by gluing pink felt around the can. Then, help your child to add googly eyes to the front -- or draw eyes on with a marker -- and glue two small felt triangles to the top of the can to serve as ears. Cut a slit in the plastic top for the coins to be inserted. This is a great way to get your child started saving his or her pennies.
