Coin Toss


  • Coin


  1. How many times can your child flip a coin without dropping it?
  2. The coin must spin in the air without touching anything, and he must catch it in the palm of his hand.
  3. See if your child can beat his previous record for catches or use an egg timer to see how many catches he can make before the time is up.
  4. Have him play against a sibling or friend to see who can make the most catches or who can toss the coin the highest without dropping it.
