Easy to make DIY felt apple counters are great for hands on tactile number learning for toddlers and preschoolers. Here is a free printable and tutorial.
Multi-Sensory Math Learning for ToddlersSo you’ve heard me talk about the importance of multi-sensory learning activities for brain development, right? I wanted to help Minnie (and eventually Tinkerbell) have practice identifying numbers & counting numbers in a tactile way. So… I made these cute little felt apple counter.
DIY Felt Apple Counters for Toddlers and PreschoolersHere is what I used: 2 sheets red felt, 2 sheets tan felt, sticker Velcro (for tactile counting), printed numbers (because I needed a guide –I’m not that crafty!), spool green ribbon, needle, black thread & red thread.
The kids LOVED these! Minnie enjoyed counting the seeds. We lined them up on the floor in order (both sides), played a game with tweezers (another good coordination skill) picking up the apples and keeping them if they knew the number, you get the idea – the skies the limit.
