National Hobby Month
Celebrate National Hobby Month throughout the month of January with us! Be sure to invite your "hobbyists" to visit our Games page and try their hand at the Tools of the Trade puzzle.
In this item-recognition activity, young numismatists help Inspector Collector differentiate between the tools of a plumber and those of a coin collector. The items must be dragged to their appropriate containers—a tool box or a satchel. The containers provide immediate feedback on whether the match is correct or not.
