Since turning 4, my son is very interested in numbers and number order. So I set up this little activity for him to practice his numbers. I took 10 craft sticks and wrote a number on each one. I also drew dots on the other side of the sticks so he can self correct himself. Then he went to work, counting dots and putting the numbers in correct order, over and over again. I also wrote the numbers so that when he puts them in the correct order, the sticks would be in a color pattern. Numbers, counting and patterning....all sorts of math happening here.
