Coin and Stamp Collecting


Materials

  • Coins and/or stamps from your own and other countries
  • Small box, notebook, or coin and stamp collecting books
  • Glue
  • Tape

Directions

  1. Start your preschooler on a coin and/or stamp collection.
  2. Ask friends and family traveling abroad to collect coins for you.
  3. Compare the coins and see what information they contain about the country.
  4. Stamps tell many different things about a country--its political leadership to its native bird life.
  5. Show your child how to remove stamps from your incoming mail by soaking them in a small amount of warm water.
  6. Give her special notebooks into which she can glue the stamps and tape the coins, or save them in a small box.
