Well, I finally did it...I came up with a game and printable for Princess all on my own. Now I want to pass it on to you.
Game: Easter Egg Counting
Goal: match the number of items counted, stored inside the easter eggs, to the correct number card
- Colourful eggs (kind you can open and put candy in)
- Pompoms (I picked mine at Dollarama- dollar store here in Canada), you could use anything that they can count (age-appropriate of course)
- Download, Print, Cut out and Laminate the Cards I created
Here are pictures of Princess playing today
|Showing what is inside|
|Counting her find--- 7 yellow pompoms|
|Another egg---- 4 white pompoms|
|Green egg of 4 pompoms on #4 card|
(#7 egg gone---Monkey took off with it
had to chase him down after the Princess
settled and I convinced her to choose another egg)
This was a hit and I am thinking that I may do a reverse counting game, with eggs filled with numbers and Princess will have to count the pompoms and match the card....maybe another printable by Monday or two....now need to think of something for Monkey to do... maybe shape matching with the eggs...He has come to love shape matching games and colour games....hmmmmm, maybe more than 1 or 2 new printables.
I hope your little one enjoys...Princess did that's for sure!!!
NB: I made mine up with scrap paper I had and markers, for a quick game. fancied them up for you with a Printable.
On a side note, Princess is really getting big and Monkey....well, here he is...
Ciao for now,
