Wishes Can Come True

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Ring in the new year with a project that your child can bank on: a custom container that lets him save up for something he really wants.


  • Coffee can
  • Paper
  • Magazine photos
  • Paint
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Other decorative elements of your choice


  1. Have your child decorate an empty coffee can with images of what he pines for. Then cut a slot in the lid that's large enough to accommodate coins and folded bills. Make the first deposit to get him started.
