If there is one thing our home is never lacking, it’s spare change. Usually, it falls out of my husband’s pockets and ends up in the couch, although we do have a jar where it’s supposed to go.
I’m always looking for a fun, unique way for my kids to pass the time, and this 3D Coin Art set is perfect! My kids were thrilled to see that we got the US Flag Set, and they couldn’t wait to attack our spare change jar and start putting the coins into the flag.
I loved watching them work together. And, while the spare change from our jar (and our couch!) didn’t quite fill up the set, they boys had so much fun working on this project. I do wish the flag held quarters, though, because we were left with lots of quarters after the boys were done. But, at the same time, it’s probably a good thing it doesn’t hold quarters, just because my kids and my husband would be much more likely to break into the flag to get the quarters out. 😉
We’ve decided we’re going to take our quarters to the bank and exchange them for pennies, dimes, and nickles so the boys can finish filling up the flag puzzle. They’re really excited about it, and I’d love for them to have something to display that they’re proud of.
Here’s how far they got:
Look how proud they are!
We still have a long way to go, but we’ll get there! Zander, the older boy in this picture, has decided they’re not putting any stickers on the base until they’ve got it all filled in and can display it.
I love that this brought some of my kids together for a project. They’ve both had so much fun with it, and they can’t wait to finish it so they can display it. What a simple, easy project that anyone can do – whether they are just a kid or an avid coin collector.
