Our money themed activity focuses on counting coins with a little scavenger hunt thrown in for fun. Hope you have your Easter eggs handy!
To prep the activity, print out our Coin Hunt recording sheet. Gather 14 Easter eggs and number them 1-14. Place coins in each egg equaling a different amount and as you put coins in, write the amounts down for a self-check sheet. We used real coins, but Melissa and Doug's Play Money Set is a great alternative.
