Math Games Mondays - Desert

Math Games Mondays - Desert
Math Games Mondays returns with a simple and fun game.

I found this cactus clipart on etsy.com  Simply buy, download, and print out one sheet for each child playing.  You could also use stickers on a piece of cardstock in a grid fashion.

The "game pieces" are Safari Ltd Desert Toob toys. (This is not a paid endorsement, but I do LOVE their toys!)  You will also need one dice or spinner per child.

The child rolls the dice and counts the number of dots. Then, he covers up that many cactus. For example, if  rolls a 4, then he would put 1-2-3-4 toys on the game board. 4 cacti would have 4 toys on them (one on each). The, they roll again and again until the whole game board (all the cacti!) are covered.

This game teaches counting and one to one correspondence.

Have a fun and playful day!
