Getting ready for a trip to Disneyland or Disney World? Don’t forget to pack pennies and quarters to make smashed pennies at the parks! Disneyland alone has over 100 different pennies you can smash! At 51 cents it’s the best souvenir in the parks! Make it easy for you and the kids by doing a little prep work before you go. I’ve created this easy-to-make personalized Smashed Penny Container using a Mini M&M container.
