Science for Toddler: Clickety-Clackety Coin

Good afternoon momma 😉

We’re back again!

You don’t need to go to a science center to teach your toddler science and nature.

You can do it at home, through games and activities, with everyday items.

Why games? Because you can help your toddler to turn an otherwise boring subject into something to look forward to.

This is simple weather experiment that shows how air flows.


Learn how to make a coin move without touching it 😀

Shocking moment!



Let the learning begin! Clickety-Clackety Coin~

Materials You’ll Need:

  • Bottle (1.5l)
  • Fridge
  • Coin (50 cent)
  • 1/2 glass of water

Step by step guide:

  • Place the empty uncapped bottle in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Dip the coin in water.
  • Remove the bottle from the freezer and immediately place the wet coin on the top of the open bottle.
  • Wait and watch the coin move! As it moves, it will make a clickety-clackety noise.

What and how?

When removed from the freezer, the cold air inside the bottle expands and tries to rush out of the bottle. This air flow causes the coin to move!


Hope your toddler gonna love this project too 😉

May Allah swt always give the best to your family. Amin~

Gambatte, gambatte ne!
