Preschooler Activity: Cleaning Money

The bigger guy (4.5 y) has recently gotten a fascination with money, and is collecting coins.  He mostly begs them off of us when we have them (we mostly use credit cards, so it's not that often).

He likes to organize them by type, stack them, sort them by year and by where they were minted, and count them.  Yesterday he even cleaned them. It took quite a while.

To do this, he used toothpaste and an old toothbrush.  He sat on a towel and scrubbed each one.  You could have your child rinse them in a bowl at this point, but I have a sonic jewelry cleaner that plugs in, so he wanted to use this.  They are super shiny now!
