Coin slot box is one of the easiest to make toy and keep the toddlers busy for long.I have used an old plastic container with lid to make this montessori toy.
Take any plastic or cardboard box with lid.
Cut the lid in the shape as shown below to let the coins pass through easily.
Keep the caps of bottles (I have chosen the size which my baby’s mouth can’t accommodate) as coins.As real coins can be hazardous.
Try and keep the caps of different colours.
Your coin slot is ready.
This helps in honing the fine motor skills, hand and eyes coordination.
This is a tried and tested way to keep the toddler busy.My baby tries to put the caps of the bottles in use as well.So when we find a cap missing, we straight away check his coin slot box for it.
