Two, four, six, eight, who do we appreciate? Well, today I'll go with numbers since we could never do this silly cheer without them. Number crafts for kids are great for teaching your little one the many of the early steps to basic learning and math. At its simplest, it is a fun way to encourage memorization, but then you can also move on easily to early counting and simple addition as well.
It is especially fun when you can make ties between number crafts and holidays. I used to have my little ones separate their Halloween candy into different piles based on type of candy and then count how much they have of each and put the piles in order from least to greatest. She just thought we were having silly fun, but we got some great learning in there and then she ate some treats for getting the counting right. Instant reinforcement. So, do some fun number crafts with your kids so you can be their number one teacher.
