mmmmm......using chocolate definitely makes learning to count more fun. This counting activity involves reading numbers, ordering numbers, counting......and.....EATING CHOCOLATE!
Harry chose some toys to bring to a chocolate teddy bears picnic and set them up around a blanket. I gave him some plates numbered 1-5. He read the numbers (with help where needed) and put them in order in front of the teddies. Then we got out the chocolate........mmmmmmm
Harry read the numbers on the plates and counted out the correct number of chocolates for each teddy.
He checked each teddy had the correct number of chocolates and then................helped the teddies to eat them!
We have also done this activity using pom poms (but chocolate is definitely more appealing!).
Harry: Age 3
