Another counting activity for Baby Moo to reinforce his counting skills with his most favorite painting technique… These can be made easily at home and have lots of fun learning 😎
A4 sheets (or any plain paper or a note book)
The Making of the Sheets:
🌸Draw some flowers with stem (no leaves) and let you little one Color them and then write the number in the middle of the flower as shown below and let your little one read the number aloud and keep the required number of leaves on the stem using their tiny little fingers🌸
🐞Draw some lady bugs (without their black dots) on the A4 sheets and let them Color it then write the numbers on their head/ or at their side as shown below and let your little ones put some dots🐞
🌳Draw some apple trees (without the apples on them) and let your little one Color the trees then write the numbers on the trunk as shown below and let your little ones put some apples on their crowns🌳
🌧Draw some grey clouds (without rain) and let your little one Color the clouds grey then write the numbers on the clouds and let your little ones make them rain🌧
Likewise,… Do make your very own counting sheets (rather than buying and printing the worksheets from the internet 😉) with the materials that you have at home and have lots of fun counting, printing and learningmy lovelies😍

Another counting activity to strengthen the little ones number recognition skill and extends further by improving their fine motor skill by gluing the hearts on the squares for ordering them in sequence 😎
Cut out little hearts from the foam sheets (no. Of hearts is of your choice) and write the numbers with their corresponding dots on each sides of the hearts as shown below👇
Cut them into two halves and place them all mixed up on the plate and let your little one do the matching of the broken hearts by counting their dots
For the extended activity:- cut out small squares from the foam sheets such that the little hearts fits in them;
Place those squares along with the glue sticks, the matched hearts on a plate and teach your toddler to stick those matched broken hearts onto the squares
Finally, teach them to place it in a sequence of ten frames as shown in below pics 👇
This would be a great introduction of “Ten Frame – number sense” for the little ones along with some learning and developing fine motor skills

A simple but effective way to teach your little ones about the basic shape and numbers in a fun filled activity ?
Thick paper / Cardboard
Green Felt (scrapes)
Draw bunnies in various shapes (of your choice) on a paper and keeping it as a model cut out the outline of the bunnies from the cardboard; similarly cut out the carrots, for the shape bunnies in their corresponding shapes
(I have used the cardboard from inside of the newly, store bought shirts ?)
Let your little ones colour the bunnies and their carrots (with colours of their choice) and once coloured highlight the bunnies and the carrots using black sketch
Now to make the greens of the carrots ?, take scrap green felt sheet and cut them in the shape of a bush and glue it behind each carrots as shown below
Finally place the coloured shape bunnies with their carrots on a flat surface and let your little ones match, count and play
Mommy taught Baby Moo to play with it and we also arranged them in number sequence to match and Baby Moo came with different possible ways to play with it while gaining some knowledge along the way ?
Make this activity at home and enjoy the evening with some good learning with fun play my lovelies ?

‘I can count’ is a wonderful math magic which helps the little ones to learn to count in a fun filled way here this DIY counting and finding the missing numbers is very easy to make and learn with?
Cardboard (thick and thin)
Strong Glue / Glue gun
I got this idea from a kids magazine where there was an activity of finding the missing numbers but since it was a one time using activity, I was not going to use it, thus the making of this activity came into existence ?
Take a thick cardboard and cut into a square shaped as shown below (the size of the cardboard is of your choice)
(I have used a calendar cardboard for this activity, as it is super strong and holds good and also the size I have used is, as same as the model from magazine)
Cover the whole cardboard with felt sheet
(colour is of your choice and as you can see from the above pic my felt sheet dint cover the whole part but still it does the job good and I’m fine with it?)
In the middle is where the numbers are going to be placed so accordingly either paint the squares or draw them for the numbers (1-20) as shown below
Cut small squares in the size .5cm lesser than the squares on the cardboard and also from the foam sheet (to make the moveable numbers super strong) and glue both the cardboard and the foam sheet squares together as shown below
Finally write the numbers on them on one side and glue the rough part of the Velcro on the other side
Thus your moveable numbers with numbered cardboard are ready to be learned and played with….
Since all the numbers are moveable you can use it as many ways/times as you wish and make your little one super strong in counting, arranging and in finding the missing numbers my lovelies ?

This activity was a great process for making art without knowing the end result… which made Baby Moo to get creative in every ways he can…?
Materials (that we used but you can always get creative):
A4 sheet papers (any paper of your choice)
The Making of the Paintings:
At first I wanted Baby Moo to do some fork painting and left him on his own to paint whatever and however he wants to and thus buy keeping the paints, A4 sheet paper and the forks in front of him began his process art…?
Next, we painted a lion by just drawing a circle (by mummy) and the remaining was purely done by Baby Moo?
And then he moved onto using a brush in one hand and fork in the other and wanted to paint some shapes (you can see from the below pics how he painted those.. no explanations needed??♀️?)
Finally he wanted to make prints (influenced by seeing activities from YouTube) both hand and leg prints and it was indeed a beauty seeing his little prints on the paper ?
Try this “Painting-A process of art making” at home with your little ones and have an exquisite creative day my lovelies ?
