Counting game made from cardboard. It doesn’t get any more DIY than that!
Do you have endless amounts of cardboard?
Does Amazon Prime have you recycling more than you can imagine?
Reuse one of your boxes for this DIY Counting with Cardboard Game for Preschoolers.
The Big Picture:
Over the last couple of weeks, we have been discussing Important Tips About Preschool Counting.
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.
How This DIY Counting Game Will Help Your Preschooler:
- Number recognition 1-10
- Number recognition for faster recognition as your preschooler begins to add and subtract.
- Recognizing what a group of 3 looks like automatically without counting will help your preschooler as they add on to concepts already mastered.
- Fine motor development when squeezing the clothespins
Words of Encouragement
When your preschooler is not into a game, put it away. Chances are, your preschooler will be ready to play another time.
Our first attempt with this game was unsuccessful due to a sleepless night. Once caught up on sleep, this DIY preschool counting game went great!
I love this idea and how simple it looks to make!
How creative! My mom would always come up with the most fascinating objects and make them into toys! ?
Going to have to share this with my daughter who is always looking for ways to make learning fun with her three little kids.
This is a great idea! I’m starting to work on counting with my little guy and we have tons of leftover Amazon boxes, so this is perfect!
