Fun Frugal Friday- Homemade Counting Tool
This week I wanted to share a counting tool that I made for Little Sweets. I took a large piece of wood and had it cut into 5 pieces around the same size. Then I wrote a number from one to five on the top of each piece of wood. I used a drill to drill the number of holes needed for each block of wood. Little Sweets will be putting golf tees inside each of the holes. I intend on using this tool to teach counting, number recognition, and fine motor skills.
* Please note I will supervise Little Sweets as she plays with this new toy. The tees are small and a bit sharp and I wouldn't want her to get hurt. Please use parental supervision if you make this activity.
