Clay Roman Coins

My first grader is taking a quick tour through world history, just learning absolute basics.  I thought it would be fun to make some clay Roman coins. 

We bought some clay you can bake.  Simple roll in a ball, then flatten with palm of hand.  Then have child scratch Romanesque designs with a toothpick.  Bake as directed.  Easy!

A note, the thicker the clay, the less likely it will crack after baking it. I hope you have fun!
