Kids Frugal Fun-Pot of Gold Learning

Each week I try to bring you a fun and frugal craft that can easily be done at home with your children. St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner so how could I not dedicate this week’s craft to such a  fun holiday?!  If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page. If you enjoy my crafts, please be sure to share them on Pinterest!

Pot of Gold Learning

Materials:
empty butter container (or yogurt, sour cream,etc)
yellow construction paper
glitter and glue
black construction paper (or whatever color you would like your pot of gold to be)

Directions:
1.  Use the yellow construction paper to make circles that will be your “gold coins”.  Ensure you make them big enough to write on. 
2.  Label the “coins” with your desired learning topic (there is a list of ideas below). I labeled mine with some of the 100 high frequency words, Will’s name, and sets of shapes.
3.  Cut the black construction paper to fit around the container.  Cover it with glue and sprinkle glitter all over it.  Definitely have your child help with this-they will love it!
4.  Glue the glitter covered paper around the butter container, put your “coins” inside, and you have a pot of gold!  Allow your child to reach in and pull out their golden nuggets of learning! 

Educational Ideas for your “coins”
-Word names for numbers (one, two, three, etc).  Have your child identify them.
-Math symbols ($,+,-, etc).  Have your child tell you what function they perform (add, subtract,etc).
-Pictures of objects found in the past and present times.  Have your child tell you when they are from.
-Shapes and have your child identify them.
-Upper and lowecase alphabet letters.
-Rhyming words and have your child match them.
-Pictures of solids, liquids, and gases and have your child ID them.
-Pictures of coins or bills and have your child ID them.
