Crafty numbers



Another simple idea to teach number recognition as well as counting. I cut out the numbers from sugar paper. I then made a few piles of arts and crafts pieces. In this case: feathers, star stickers, lolly pop sticks, pom poms and pink squares.

Daughter covered the whole number in pritt stick glue. And I asked her what number it was. After this, I told her she needs to put the right number from each pile of crafts on to the number. So 1 pom pom on number 1, 1 feather on number 1, 1 star sticker on number 1, 3 pom poms on number 3, 3 pink squares on number 3 etc.

What was interesting about this was that I noticed that she really took extra care to count how many things she put on each number. She told me: ‘Ummi, I have to count them first’ and ‘Oh! I’ve got four pink squares – that’s wrong. I need 3 for number 3’. So it really showed that she understood the concept I was teaching her. Alhamdulillah.
