We stopped by our very favorite store, Mecca, yesterday to pick up a few decorations for Carter's birthday party as well as some plastic containers for this project!
We found great containers with poppable and attached lids. As always, Carter was super excited to see me bring out the paint! He picked out the colors and started to paint the lids. While the lids were drying, I cut out the cents numbers from stickers.
Once the lids were dry, Carter placed the stickers onto the lids. This was a perfect learning opportunity to teach him 1, 5, 10, and 25 cents. I cut a slit in each lid large enough for the coins to drop through.
I dumped out a bunch of change onto the table and we started sorting. Again going over what a penny is, quarter, dime, and nickel. Great fun!
