I love activities that are easy, fun, and educational. That's a win all the way around. I found some pipe cleaners in my closet and remembered an activity I had seen here using pipe cleaners and beads to reinforce number skills. This Fine Motor Skills Counting Activity is great for little hands and kids who are starting to learn numbers and one to one correspondence as are these Counting Games.

This activity took a little preparation on my part. I found some masking tape and made little flags on the pipe cleaners and numbered them 1-10. I gave the girls some beads and showed them how they could look at the number and place the correct amount of beads on the pipe cleaner. We did a few together and counted to check our work.
