The edible counting game is a great way to practice both counting and number recognition. And if your kiddo has already mastered counting, it can be easily adapted to become an addition and subtraction game. The best part–kids love eating the treats after the game is over!
Raisins, fruit snacks, chocolate chips, marshmallows, etc…
Label each baking cup from 1-12. Start with any number. (Before Sophie had number recognition down, I always started with 1 and worked up to 12).
Ask your child what the number is. When they identify the number correctly, have them count out that number of goodies and place it in the baking cup.
Do this for every number. When you have completed all of the numbers, you can eat your goodies!
