Play: Strawberry Seeds Counting Activity
I know this is a little late to go with the “love” week, but I just finished it last night for my kiddos and I think it turned out really well.
Each strawberry has a number on it, and kids can either use a black dry erase marker to add the correct number of “seeds” or they can use dry black beans. When using the black beans, it’s especially good because it helps kids develop the one-to-one correlation mathematical milestone.
To make this, I used this great free printable from FirstPallete (I used template #1). I cut out 10 strawberries from red construction paper and 10 tops from green. I glued the tops on, sent the strawberries through the laminating machine, cut them out, and then put scrapbooking number stickers on top of each one.
