This was a fun and easy activity to put together today. It can be used to review numbers or to practice simple addition/subtraction facts. I went to McDonalds and asked for some unused french fry containers. Then, I bought a pack of yellow sponges for around $1. I cut the sponges to look like french fries.
I would like to place some velcro on the french fry containers, but haven't had the time to do that yet. On the boxes, place whatever you would like to review. It could be anything from numbers 1-10 or review higher numbers. Have your preschooler put the correct number of fries in each box. To practice simple addition/subtraction facts, just replace the numbers with the facts.
Lexy really enjoys playing store. So, I plan to use these to role play and review math. She will be the cashier and I will order a box of fries. She saw me make them and is anxiously waiting to play!
