Another option is to play a number memory game. This can be done on individually or with a friend. Preschoolers will put all the bread pieces upside down. On their turn they will turn over two pieces of bread. If they match (meaning they have a jelly number and peanut butter side with the corresponding number of peanuts) they get to keep the sandwich they made. If playing with a friend, if students make a match they get to go again. Continue playing until all the bread has been made into yummy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

This activity not only allows kids to work on counting and visual discrimination, but allows them to improve their memory too!
