Counting Activities
  • While you drive or walk around your town, go on a number hunt. Have your child look for numbers on signs, mail boxes or cars. This is a fun activity that encourages number recognition as well as counting skills.
  • Label disposable cups with numbers and have your child place that number of objects (pom poms, cereal, cotton balls, etc.) inside the cup. This is a great activity for counting, fine motor skills as well as number recognition.
  • Have your child sort household items such as socks, shoes, or cereal. Sort by color, size and shapes. Count the items, which one has the most? Which one has the least amount?
