There are lots of activities you can do with real coins if you have them - don't forget to wash your hands after:
- sort them into the different values
- sort them according to colour/shape/size
- put them in order of value
- coin rubbings - place a piece of paper on top of the coin - rub gently over with a crayon to reveal your coin
- have a feely bag - place the coins inside, choose one and try to guess what it is just by feeling it's shape and size
- make a pretend shop - have items priced up with tags - use real money to pay for items and to give change!
