One teacher told me her kids are placing the money banks on their desktops all month and adding coins. Brilliant!
...fun, cute, and artistic.
This year I'll print the money banks on neon multi-colored card stock, just to see them POP.
...and have kids shake their money boxes rhythmically, as we chant a list of American Presidents' names.
...and do coin rubbings inside a giant heart shape to remind kids to love and respect money--the result of hard work and effort.
For more coin activities for kids, see here.
Enjoy your Presidents Day Money Banks! And, if you'd like the bank plus a few more unbearably adorable President Crafts, take a look:
