Individual Student Coin Banks

 I am so excited about my new individual coin banks...and my students are too!! Not only do they keep our coins nicely organized, but it helps my students to remember the names and values of each coin as they practice learning to count money! I also plan to use them as a sorting task for my students that aren't yet ready to count money.

Want to make your own?! Here's how!

I cannot take credit for this clever idea! These coin banks were inspired by The Starr Spangled Planner and you can grab the labels for free in her TpT store.

 The containers are from The Container Store and are just $1.99 each. They are very durable and have a nice snap closure. You can find them here.
These are the coins that I used and I got them from Lakeshore. The set includes pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters, and half dollars. You can find them here.
I laminated the labels and used double-sided scotch tape to secure the labels onto my containers. It holds up really well and is invisible if you choose to place the cover labels on the inside like I did.
Have fun making yours! It literally only took me about 40 minutes to make 12, from start to finish!!

Want to save this project for later? Pin it here.
