I had some leftover Easter eggs from this alphabet activity and figured we could use some counting practice. This idea has been all over pinterest, but I loved that Playing House added a counting manipulative to make it more exciting! We have a bunch of pom-poms around, so they worked excellently. I used a variety to keep it fun – some tiny ones, a couple big ones and the favorite…. sparkly purple ones!
I had enough pom-poms available to color coordinate to each egg which helped Abby complete numbers 5-10 independently. She loved filling her eggs up! I love that I can easily make this an exciting, new game by simply swapping the manipulative in a couple weeks.
