Clay Money Toppers for Kids

Looking for a fun activity to help encourage your young children to save? Make clay money toppers with your kids for a fun and inexpensive activity.  Sculpey Bake & Bend or Craftsmart Oven Bake Clay both work well because you can bake the clay in your regular oven at home. (There are other brands you can try too). Once you have your clay toppers finished, each time your child saves a dollar in change, top the stack with the clay ornament for a cute display on your child’s dresser. Encourage your children to count their own stacks of coin and see the joy on their faces when they are able to successfully count up to one dollar and get to top the stack with their clay ornaments.  It’s the icing on the cake or, more specifically, the animal on the stack!
