Our first morning and Mike’s mom’s house in Vegas, we came downstairs (at some absurdly early hour, since the kids were on East Coast time) to find the following note:
The kids enjoyed helping us roll the container of change above, as well as a second container with a similar amount of money. Any guesses how much money we rolled?
Thanks to this activity, Emma is now an expert at telling nickels, dimes, and quarters apart, and Johnny is an expert at putting coins in stacks of five! Lily enjoyed a fun sensory experience, and thankfully did not try to put any coins in her mouth! Still working on teaching all three kids the relative value of the coins…
Update: the total change rolled added up to $334.50. We were pretty shocked! So, if you have change sitting around, you may want to start rolling it =)
