Clank Cans

Mommy Nature's Preschool Blog

(adapted from original idea from
The sound of the metal juice can lid (the clank coin) hitting the metal at the bottom of the clank can provides its own reward.  Kids love to fit items into other items and this activity offers that fun as well!

Empty, clean formula or Ovaltine can
several clean metal juice lids from frozen juice cans
sticker paper
clear contact paper
clank can picture file (choose from below)

Decorate outside of formula or Ovaltine can as desired.  I simply used foam sticker letters to "write" Clank Can so that I can use the same can interchangeably and not have a load of cans to store. 
Print clank can pictures onto sticker paper.  Cover with clear contact paper.  Cut pictures apart.  Round the corners to fit the juice can lid.  Stick onto juice lids.
Cut a slit in the Clank Can lid to fit the pictures or clank coins.
