1.  Play “War with only the numerical playing cards.  Little ones have a hard time with the A, K, Q, and J but using just the numbers helps them to not only recognize greater and smaller, but their numbers!

2.  Blue Bean Counting Game from education.com takes a few items from around your home to play!

3.  Use Your Muffin Tins – Tape numbers in the bottom of the cups of an old muffin tin. Have the child place the corresponding amount of items, such as buttons, erasers or snacks, in the corresponding tin.

4. Crocodile Counting – Free Paint strips and some clothes pins make this a fun counting game!

5. Clean Counting – This is one we have ALWAYS done.  When my boys were little (well, even now LOL!)  we had them clean their rooms by doing it a few at a time.  Go find 2 items to throw away… put away 5 cars… get 4 pieces of dirty laundry out.  They counted AND cleaned their room.

6.  Nine Learning Games you can make at home or do with household items.

7. The Giant Pattern Blocks idea from The Educator’s Spin On It looks like MEGA fun for your little ones.
