Penny Polishing

Saturday morning, M. and I polished pennies for our MOMS Club Easter Egg Hunt yesterday.

We used put a drop or two of lemon juice on the front of each penny, dipped a toothbrush in salt then scrubbed away before repeating on the back. Once we had polished them all, we rinsed them clean and let them dry.

We both really liked this work...it was soothing in a way and VERY satisfying to see the pennies restored to a bright and shiny state.



I found the idea at the 4Real Learning Boards here (scroll down for the post that describes the activity).
