Everyday objects such as pennies and dollar bills can go unnoticed in our lives. We use
them all the time, but how often do we really look at them? Taking the time to investigate a
familiar thing in detail and then learning to design something similar will strengthen your
child’s observation skills, creativity, and appreciation for detail.
During this activity, your child will design his or her own money based on the idea that
United States currency uses symbols to convey meaning.
