Another Easy Counting Game

I realized sometime ago that if I let my youngest students, 2-3 year olds, go too long with out using their little hands, they get really restless. So sometimes I ask them to close their eyes, and I put things around the room to pick up. I use different things, crayons, small pieces of construction paper cut out into shapes, etc.

After putting the objects around the room, I ask them to open their eyes and go pick up as many of the objects as they can. Once they have finished, I ask them to sit down and we take turns counting the objects that they collected.

Very easy, very fun and educational for the students. I always follow this kind of activity up with an easy to sing numbers song such as the Numbers Blues, or Let’s Count 1-10.
