Baby Piggy Bank

Make your baby’s first piggy bank! Using a large can or plastic container, cut a large-sized hold in the lid or cover. Collect different toys or items that can be dropped into the bank (make sure not to use tiny items or actual coins, since they are a choking hazards for small children). You can collect puzzle pieces or lids or cut cardboard shapes. Demonstrate how to drop the “money” into the bank and watch as your child follows your lead.
