Sticky Stuffs and Kids
Inspired by these cute monster counting cards on Playdough to Plato, here's a sticky variation of it. I know right, why a sticky version?
Because there's just something about sticky stuffs that ALWAYS get kids' attention. They just love these sticky stuffs, think glue, stickers, washi tapes and the star of this activity - CONTACT PAPER.
What do you need?
- Contact paper
- Lots of goggly eyes
- Permanent marker
- Number cards ( I got mine from Daiso. You can simply write numbers on small pieces of cardstock paper.)
Set up this monster counting activity
Cut a piece of contact paper (12" by 12") and draw a monster on the non-sticky side. Do not draw the eyes. Stick this contact paper on a door/wall, sticky side facing out. Invite your child to choose a number card and put the same number of eyes on the monster.
Fine Motor for the Little Fingers
Picking up these little goggly eyes is such great fine motor work for toddlers. Have the children peel off the goggly eyes to work those little fingers more!
Learn Addition for Older Kids
You can easily adapt this activity for older preschoolers or kindergarteners who are learning addition. Invite your child to pick 2 number cards. Put the same number of eyes from the 2 cards on the monster. Count the total number of eyes on the monster.
