Sugar Aunts: Counting Nature

Counting Nature


 
This was a fun play activity that we did one day this week.  Simple. Nature...and a little fun Learning.
 
I wrote numbers 1-12 on the bottom of this candy mold. (I wrote on the bottom and with a sharpie, so I had to write it backwards for it to show correctly. But, just in case it didn't wash off, I wanted it to be on the bottom and not in the little molds.)
 
We went for a loooong walk in the woods and around our neighborhood and gathered little items, filling each of the sections with the correct number of items. 
 

One-to-one correspondence, numbers, nature exploration, and just plain old having fun being outdoors...It was a great day!
