Play, develop fine motor skills and hand eye coordination with stuff you already have at home.
👌 this is an amazing activity for out and about. Need to keep your toddler occupied at a cafe? Give them a handful of change and your purse or the container that the sugar packets are in. They’ll be busy for ages!
Give your toddler a handful of coins and a money box. Whilst they’re having fun, they’re also developing their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
If you don’t have a money box, simply cut a slit into any tub or box you have laying around.
Watch closely to avoid any mouthing of the coins, but trust your little one can learn how to appropriately engage with them.
Add language like counting, in, push, more, tip them out, shiny, money, finished.
The best activities are the ones with stuff you probably have at home!
