What You Do
- Download and Print the Pattern
Download and print the apple pattern.
- Cut Out Apples
Paper-clip the pattern to a piece of craft foam. Cut out the apples carefully. (You can also cut out the pattern shapes and use them to trace outlines on the foam.) Now you have the perfect prop with which to practice counting!
- Play a Counting Game
Before bathtime, have your toddler gather the apples. Count how many apples you have. As you wait for the bath to fill, dip the apples into the water and stick them to the side of the tub wall. Count them as you put them on the wall. When the tub is filled, and the apples are up, have your toddler “pick” them off and count along.
- Use Different-Colored Apples
Try making apples with different colors of craft foam. That way, you can practice colors and grouping during bathtime!
