Who says toys have to cost a lot to be entertaining? Sometimes the best ones are practically free. This one will keep your little one occupied for hours.

Future financiers will learn the value of a dollar (or a penny) with this easy-to-make piggy bank.

What You’ll Need

  • Large empty cylindrical container
  • Googly eyes
  • Pink construction paper
  • Pink pipe cleaner
  • Glue

Bank on It

  • Wrap the container in pink construction paper.
  • Help your child to glue large googly eyes to the lid.
  • Cut out ears and a nose and glue them to the lid.
  • Cut a small slit in the lid to use as the mouth.
  • Punch a hole in the other end of the container.
  • Thread a pink pipe cleaner through it. Anchor the inside end by double-knotting it.
  • Curl the other end of the pipe cleaner to create a tail.

Allow your child to put some coins into the slot. If she wants to take her money out, simply open the lid.
