An On-The-Go Counting Game

Make an easy counting game that can be stashed in your bag for on-the-go learning!  I took approximately 15  Ziploc bags and added labels with simple math formulas to the front:

My daughter counts out objects and places the correct answer in the bags.  I can roll up the bags and stash them in my bag to take to restaurants where we use sugar packets, crackers or other treats to keep her busy:

Once she’s mastered the formulas, I make a new label and just place it on top of the old!

The great part is you can always find something to count with where ever you go: rocks, snacks, leaves etc.  It changes up the game.


A big thanks to Ziploc for sponsoring this campaign. Click here to see more of the discussion.
