Penny Boat Race

Last night I took the kids to Science Night as the 9 year olds school. I've took them the past couple years and it's always pretty fun. The 4 year olds favorite activity was "Penny Boat Race". Of course this is nothing new and its been on to-do list for awhile. I promisded him we could do it all day today if he wanted and he did do it for a looooong time today. Like, hours, seriously. I started out by making two ships and he made one. Then I made a chart to see how many of each coin ended up sinking the boats. I was very proud of his counting to some very large numbers! :)


  1. Great activity! We'll definitely give this a try. Thanks! :)

  2. Another great idea...Can I send my son over!
