This week’s theme is Money.
Learning about money exchange is an important life skill. You can have a lot of fun setting up a shop or creating a money exchange for a snack. Perhaps you could make a list and visit a local shop to buy something? Or have a look at online shops to find the prices of things, maybe adding them together or working out what you could buy with a certain amount.
Can you sort different coins into a cake tin – Or write an amount in a cupcake case - children to find coin to match amount and place in cupcake case
Can you sort coins by colour/shape? Place one of each coin in bowls/tubs/cups - give children a box with a mixture of coins to sort/match to the correct bowl
Can you match the coin to the amount?
Hide coins in sensory materials such as flour, pasta, sand or jelly! Can you find the coins? Can you match them? Can you identify which coins they are?
You could try posting coins in piggy bank and make a piggy bank as an additional activity.
You could try posting coins to match an amount or posting a set of coins (ie. a set of 1ps or 2ps or 5ps or 10ps and counting in those multiples to find how much altogether)
