Playing This Fun Counting Game
Print out the mats you wish to use. I suggest laminating them for durability.
Place some small items in a bowl that your child can use to fill in the circles – pompoms, cereals, buttons etc would all make good items. Alternatively, you could use a dot/bingo marker.
In this printable, your child will learn about ten frames and one to one correspondence while strengthening their fine motor skills.
When my son did this, he used cereals which he ate afterwards of course 🙂
Learning Tools and Ideas to Extend This Activity
If you used cereals, you could then move on to another fine motor activity like using them for threading or making cereal towers with spaghetti noodles and playdough. Enjoy!
