Mitten Math

This is a simple counting and number recognition activity. Cut out 2 mitten shapes out of construction paper. Then cut 1-inch squares and write numbers 1 through 10 on them and place tape to the backs to attach to the mittens.

When your child is ready, place the mittens and pom poms out on the table. Take a number and attach it to a mitten. Then let your child count out the number of pom poms and place them on the other mitten. Remove the pom poms and continue with the rest of the numbers. When your child is through with this fun learning activity, give your child some glue to decorate the mittens.
