Directions to make your counting game:

STEP 1: Gather your supplies

For this fun apple theme counting game you don't need many supplies at all! You will just need your apple shaped chocolates, some labels and marker pens.

STEP 2: Prepare labels

Once you have your supplies - it's time to start preparing your labels that will go on the apple shaped chocolates. First, write the numbers 1-10 on a sheet of labels and then draw apples on another sheet.

When you draw your apples, carefully draw the number of apples to match the numbered labels. On the first label, you'll draw one apple. On the next, you'll draw two apples. Then, three apples. So on and so forth until you reach the number ten.

As you get to the bigger numbers, you will have to draw very small apples to fit them all on the label - be careful as you are drawing these as it can be easy to mess up.

STEP 3: Prepare the apple chocolates

Next, prepare the apple chocolates for your counting game - starting by sticking each label on the back of the chocolates. Once you have done that, turn each of them over and line them up in a grid formation to play the game.
