Ellen Luckett Baker created this project with her kids after explaining to her children why President’s Day is celebrated. After looking at president’s that were pictured on different coins, they decided to make their own coins using shrink plastic.
While I certainly think this is a great project to do for President’s Day, I think it would be fun to see what the kids come up with no matter what time of year it is. Ellen suggests using the coins as currency in your household.
