More about money - pennies and nickels

The boys have been learning more and more about money. We have covered nickels and dimes. They have been a bit confused about the relationship between all the coins so we are trying to come up with new activities that would help them solve the confusion.
Here we put together a sheet with pictures and prices and gave the kids bowl with pennies and nickels. 

The goal was to build the prices using different coins. In how many ways can you make 18 cents? Another fun activity was - "Buy something for your sister" or "Pick what daddy would like". They love to hide it and surprise me.

This has been a winner with the boys so we made some more for nickels and quarters as well.
