Penny Challenge

Penny Challenge

Happy New Year! Looking for something fun to do with your kids? Consider starting a penny challenge! Even if it’s not January 1st, you can still start. Begin any day of the year, collect pennies, and after 365 days you will have saved almost $700! I made a cute little label that you can print and put on your penny saving container:)

PENNY CHALLENGE - Begin any day of the year, collect pennies, and after 365 days you will have saved almost $700! Start today!

So here’s how it works (this is a great math activity for kids). On day 1, save 1 penny. On day 2, save 2 pennies. On day 50, save 50 pennies. Have your kids figure out what other coins they can use as the days go on. For example, on day 50 you don’t really have to put 50 entire pennies in your savings jar. Ask your kids, “What other coins could we use?” Consider 2 quarters, 5 dimes, etc.
