Beans and play dough?

counting activity at home

Heres a simple number activity for your little ones to do at home.


1. Write a number on a sheet of paper with a black maker. Try to use one sheet of paper per number for visual clarity.Make about 3-5 numbers before starting. 

2. Show your little how to shape the play dough to the number then place it over the outlined number on the paper. Work on one number at a time, this is great for strengthening fine motor skills and number recognition. 

3. Count the number of beans then place them under the paper to represent the quantity .

We worked on tens but this can most certainly work for any smaller or bigger numbers. For example, ages 3-4 you can start with numbers 0-9, then keep on going!

Happy counting!
