When we’re not able to travel with the family, we like to find ways to bring the world to our living room! This post is sponsored by a great company that helps us do just that, Coinart!
This month we visited the Empire State Building from our living room by building this
I had never heard of a coin puzzle. When I’d seen them in stores, I just assumed it was a coin bank, but it’s really so much more!
To begin, you line one half of the case against the map and begin placing coins in their slots.
I found that this was a great way to work with my kids on telling the different coins apart as well. My littles are still young so they get nickles, dimes, quarters and pennies mixed up ALL THE TIME. Doing this puzzle was a fun way for them to practice figuring out which is which!
Then, we covered fine motor exercises, as they work hard to get each coin in the correct slot.
Thankfully, there is a handy guide that shows how many of each coin you’ll need to get started. It would be a lot harder to create without knowing that!
I was impressed with how intricate the design was. It wasn’t simple stacking a few coins together here and there. There were smaller coins spaced between larger ones, color patterns and more!
We found this was a really fun way to spend time together as a family. Time spent together is one of our favorite things about traveling with our kids, and we love that it’s something we can always do at home too!
Extra special when we’re able to partner our favorite things together, even at home! Family time while exploring and learning together!
