Money Box Craft Activity
Use a small to medium coffee or Milo or any tin or type container with a plastic lid.
Seal the lid, and cut a line into it (the plastic lid) so that the coins can slide in easily, but not come out.
Remove the current covering - if any.
Using artistic stickers found at various shops - e.g. Crazy stores, let the children stick the stickers onto the tin.
If no stickers are available, use birthday or any other wrapping and cover the tin.
Let the child copy his/her name and glue to his/her name onto the tin.
You have now created your money box.
