How To Play Penny For Your Thoughts

Each kid gets a coin. When asked, they share something significant that happened to them the year the coin was made in.

This is basically just a novel way to get conversation flowing and is probably best played with older kids who have been alive longer :P (make sure you check that the dates on the coins are not before the kids were born!)

It could also be a good way to split groups up (ie. one group can be the 1970s, another the 1980s etc)

Materials Needed

5 cent pieces
