Snack of the Week


Pick smaller fruit items that will allow you to count!

Count them before you eat them,

when you eat them and as they disappear (as you eat them)

keep counting to see how many are left!


Art Project of the Week

Create A Panda

DLTK has a great paper panda project: Click here

To keep with our counting theme, count out the parts of the panda, the art tools and more!

Be creative here and find things to count as your do your project.


Field Trip of the Week


Take a trip to a restaurant.

While you are there, see how many things you can count!

Ask your kiddo, how many forks/spoons/cups, etc are on the table?

Then count them! You can do this with anything and this is a great

activity to focus on when out in a restaurant to keep your kiddo occupied!

App of the Week

Preschool Counting App – FREE!

If you have a kiddo just starting to learn how to count, this is a great free app!
