Cakes has been saving money since birth however she has only been placing it in her money boxes herself since just before her 2nd birthday. Like most toddlers, Cakes is fond of 'posting'. She has many toys that allow her to post including a Piggy bank, Pig and letterbox which are all great toys to develop hand eye coordination, fine motor skills and counting however Cakes prefers real world things and doesn't really enjoy these toys. In the photos below Cakes used several money boxes to spread her collected coins across. She placed all gold in one and then sorted the larger silver and smaller silver coins into the other two money boxes. We counted each coin as it went (as she has only learnt to count to 20 we stopped at 20 and went back to 1 before continuing) and discussed the numerals written on each coin and its value. Her favourite coin is the 20 cent coin as it is "a big circle" though she is considering the $2 coin as whenever she is asked how much something is it is "two dollars".
