- Numeracy and recognising, matching and correctly labelling coins
- dexterity in building a pile of coins
- Counting to 94 (quite a feat for her)
- Social skills of persuading toddler to hand back coins and not to destroy the piles of coins or interfere with the grand plan
All of this in 10 minutes and without calling it homework, learning or even having it directed by an adult. Self-motivated, self-directed, meaningful and fun. I had no input in it other than keeping me (and Snowflake) out of it.
