Pasta Counting

This is a quick numbers and counting activity that lets your kid be a little crafty at the same time.
Pasta Counting

Materials Needed:
- Dried Pasta
- Large piece cardboard
- Markers
- Glue

Start by dividing your cardboard into sections (how high you want to count).

 I left a space for him to write his name at the top, and then I used a pencil to write the numbers down the side so he could trace them.


Then just glue a dot for each piece of pasta and stick them on, counting as you go.




This actually helped a lot more than I thought it would.
Cannon is really good at recognizing numbers, but has a harder time with actually counting.
This was a good way to let him figure it out hands on.
