Counting with Cubes – Learn your numbers

I got these cute wooden colored cubes from the dollar store. Perfect for little hands to hold them. They can be used as basic math manipulative to illustrate area and volume, measurement, averaging, counting, and more. Today we used these in our counting activity. Its always fun to learn in different ways.

This is a simple activity. Kids learn counting, number recognition & one to one correspondence.. My almost 3 yr old was very involved in this activity and repeated it a couple of times with her counting bears & pom poms. My 20 months old cant count yet, but she just enjoyed placing the cubes in the squares. I guess the laminated sheets added some interest to this. πŸ˜€

What you need

  • Paper
  • Marker
  • Blocks

How to

  • On a sheet of paper, write the numbers & mark the boxes accordingly(above pic). I printed & laminated it for reuse. You could also make number cards.(below pic)
  • Now let your kids places the cubes on the corresponding boxes as they count along. 

You could do this activity using pom poms, legos, buttons, counting bears or just anything which your kids would enjoy to count with.

    Want to make it more fun – Play a game – Let your kids roll the dice, place the cubes on the number displayed.

      Also arrange the cubes to form numbers and let your kids guess what number it is or draw the numbers on a paper and and ask them to arrange the cubes on it. πŸ‘
