Hands On Storytime Activities
Lets talk about money!
There are two activities in the grab and go bags today.The first activity is a coin recognition puzzle match. There are pieces of paper with the front and back of a coin, the name of the coin, and the value of the coin. The goal is to sort through them and putting each in their own matching piles. The second activity is a coin sorting mat. Grab a cup full of change and review with them each coin and their values, then have them sort out the coins using the mat. The items you need will be in our grab and go bags with the exception of the cup of coins. It will also have instructions and of course a snack!
