Apple Math

This was a fun activity that I saw on pinterest once again! It was so simple and I had everything in the house. I cut a tree shape out of construction paper (I figure we can use it for a bunch of learning activities this fall, and maybe again in the spring!). I found a small bag of small red pompoms (the apples), and 2 dice. I had the kids roll both dice, they then had to add the dots, and place that many apples on the tree. They counted out loud while they put the apples on the tree. They both really had fun with this, and kept asking to do it again. I like that we had 2 dice because it made them add up to 12!

Cute idea! Pinterest is my favorite thing.

Have you seen the game Hi Ho Cherry-O? It's a counting game that our son LOVED when he was 3 and 4.

Thanks! Looks like that game may go on the Chirstmas list this year. Oh, and I found you on pinterest!
