This is a super simple learning activity that can be adapted in many ways to suit different ages and stages. The best thing about this activity is that Jake, my 3.5 year old instigated it himself. :)
So we cut out some more trees and started the activity again. To count out from 1 - 10 you will need 55 pieces. That's a lot of playdough trees, I can tell you!
He finally got to the end and was very pleased with himself; he said it was "hard work!".
For older children you could extend this activity to do addition and subtraction, and graphing. For preschoolers you could use playdough to sort, order, match and spot the differences.
Have your kids ever come up with any activities by themselves?
