I found some great tongue depressors at the chemist and they come in handy for so many activities, wooden texture is great for little fingers to feel and so cheap!
This activity involves sticking coloured circles on the sticks and writing in felt tip at the bottom how many stickers are on each one.
Tara then had a bunch of small pom poms she had to place over the matching coloured stickers and count. This helps with the recognition of the number which lately we have been stumbling with since learning to count backwards it all gets a little muddled again.
I chose for the first time to give her the exact number of coloured pom poms so she could self correct but in time just giver her a bowl of assorted colours to increase the difficulty
