Each of our bigger kids has 2 piggy banks, one for their savings, and the other for charity.
Sometimes, especially with the 3 year old, he gets a little confused by the various coins, so one rainy day, I let them empty their piggy banks and do some money sorting work.
They sorted the money out into small kitchen ramekins,
then decided they wanted to see if the different "monies" would float or sink at varying rates.
Turns out they all sink, but they had a blast, and I got another chance to give them my two cents (sorry, I couldn't help the pun) about the importance of giving.
The cork in there was a leftover from a cork-toothpick-washi-tape boat we made earlier that day.
