Kids love this easy money sorting activity for a little easy early learning at home using all those spare coins you have lying around!

Kids sit in a circle and pass the can around – when it is their turn, the child takes one and says the name of the coin. If they are correct, the stick goes in the center, if they are wrong, the stick goes back in the can. If they pull the bankrupt stick, all the sticks go back in the can. Can be adapted for number recognition and shapes.

Each purse contains coins. Pupils add up the amounts and write the answers in the boxes provided. Mixed coins (1p, 2p and 5p) going up to 10p total.

Practice counting money with cupcake liners! Fun math center idea.
