Coin Rubbing

Garden Bin Preschool Craft

Create a work of art by making an impression of coins, just like Matthew collected!


White paper
Coins (Note: Be safe! Do not leave young children unattended around small coins.)


  1. Place a coin underneath a sheet of paper.
  2. Gently color over just where the coin is to make an impression.
  3. Repeat using different coins and colors all over your paper!
  4. Talk about Matthew the tax collector. He would collect more money than he was supposed to when he collected the taxes. Jesus loved him anyway, and Jesus told Matthew to “Follow Me!” Everyone can be friends with Jesus.
