Reinforce coins (penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar & dollar) with this quick, easy and fun coinapillar craft.
Teachers can make a sample of each one to use as a springtime money bulletin board and/or make extra sets to use as an independent puzzle center, or to use to play Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” games.
Assign a coin to each student, or give them a choice, and have children make their own coinapillars. Completed projects make a cute bulletin board. Caption: “Caterpillars Make Cents!” or “Making ‘Cents’ of Money With The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
