I got this idea from one of the brilliant moms on Pinterest.
So easy to do and Caleb got to practice counting!
I drew two dinosaurs. Prepared clothespins and a dice. Caleb insisted on wearing his silly hat.
We each took turns rolling the dice and putting the corresponding number of clothespins on our dinosaurs to make them look like stegosaurus spikes.
Count the pins before pinning.
Adding the spikes.
Whoever gets the most “spikes” on their dinosaur wins the game! Caleb is counting his clothespins to see if he really won the game.
Wonderful practice for counting and comparing more or less.
Using stickers to make sets.
Just another fun way to count.
Caleb kept on telling me that the number 1 was missing. Maybe I should’ve made the numerals 1-3. Thought that would be too easy. Oh well!
This took some time to finish since Caleb would lose count while taking the sticker out of its plastic liner. No complaints from me! That just meant more counting practice for him. He would recount every after he puts a sticker on the paper to make sure that the numeral and the number of stickers matched.
