Understanding How We Use Complex Objects: Helping Your Child Understand Complex Common Objects through Representational and Symbolic Thinking
For quite a while now, your child has understood what many common objects are used for. Combs are for tidying hair, pencils are for scribbling, and spoons are for eating. But there are many common household objects whose use is not quite so obvious, such as money and credit cards or watches and clocks.

This is quite a leap for a small child, but your child has reached the age of representational thinking (you'll also see this in his artwork!).
