    We cut a slot in a small but strong box so it looks like a money box, and used the milk bottle tops like coins. Good for hand eye coordination.

    We collected heaps of lids and drilled a hole in each. We gave these to the kids with a long shoe lace and they threaded the lids on very happily for ages
