This is a super fun science project for kids!
Great little Back to School project--or possibly a fun elementary science fair presentation!
You will need Pennies! We used 96!
A frame, no glass
some fabric...we used burlap...something heavy is best!
Yes, that easy!
Step 1: Sort Supplies and Pennies!
Find a frame you like...remove glass.
Cut some cardboard for a backing if frame doesn't have one. Trim the backing board slightly, so it fits back into the frame when covered with material...this will depend on the material you've selected. I used thick burlap, canvas or denim or duckcloth is good too!
Cover the backing with fabric and hot glue in place.
Now, line a row a pennies across the top and the side. Multiply to see how many pennies you'll need.
Have your child(ren) sort through all the pennies and put them into color categories.
Shiny copper, dark brown, hints of black, and teal.
Now you want to have about an even amount of each variety...
If you are like us, you'll only have 1 or 2 teal ones!
