Building block towers- One-to-One Correspondance

Today I have a simple, fun counting activity to share with you.   All you need is a pen or pencil, scrap paper, and blocks.

Write a number on a piece of paper and have your child build a tower using that number of blocks.  For example I wrote 3 and the girls picked 3 blocks and built a tower using those 3 blocks.  Now I didn't have a rule that it had to be stacking on top of each other (that would be another challenge).  The girls had a blast.

Let the children explore for a couple of minutes with the blocks before you start the activity. 

 I tore pieces of paper and wrote a number.  Then  C and A were to build a tower using that number of blocks.

She was so proud of her tower using 11 blocks.  (You can't see them all in this pic).

For A, she built a tower with 2 blocks on her own.  

This was such a simple and cheap activity. I spent no time on preparation and the girls had a blast building the towers.

Thanks for stopping by!
