Directions:

 
Simply glue flowers to the tips of the craft sticks with glue. While they are drying, tape numbers on small containers, 1 through 5. I typed out some numbers in a Word document and printed them on colored paper. You could also use number stickers or just hand-write them. Keep it simple!
 
Note: You certainly are not limited to 5. If your child is counting higher, you can add more containers and flowers! A great activity that can grow with your child.

How to use:

  • Display the containers in a row, with the flower sticks beside them. 
  • Call out the numbers with your child, pointing to each number as you do so.
  • Invite your child to place the correct number of flowers in each container.
  • Once your child masters this, try mixing up the numbers so they are not in order.
