Montessori Activity: Learning Number Recognition with Popsicle Sticks


Age: From 3.5 years old

Activity Duration: 5 - 15 minutes

Materials:
1. 1 bag of 20 popsicle sticks labelled at the top with number 1 - 20 with a pen
2. 1 piggybank
3. 1 tray

Directions:
1. Call out a number and ask your child to find the stick with that number.

2. Ask your child to put it into the piggybank.

Tips:

If you have two sets, you can play a game of who can complete it first.

Additional Information:
Joshua (3Y5M19D) tried this today, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not too easy and not too challenging, one of the few times, when I got it just right. Joshua got most of the numbers 1-10 correct.
 
For the teen numbers, I have to give him clues such as 17 is 1 and 7 together. I will call out no. 17 and tell him to look for the number with 1 and 7. He could find them and place them into the piggybank.

 
 
Popsicle sticks are available from Amazon:
