Bat Number Find




We're going batty for BATS during our Preschool@Home this week!
Here is our first fun activity.


Supplies:

Prep Work:
  • With a white crayon, draw the following shapes on the black construction paper:
    • On the left half, draw a tall U-shape. Then connect the top with a curvy line. 
    • On the right half, draw a circle. Then draw a zig-zag across the middle.



  •  Cut out the shapes. Glue the 2 half-circles (with the zig-zags facing down) onto the U-shape. Voila! You made a BAT!



  • Using the white crayon, draw a smiley face on your bat.
  • Next, write the numbers 1-20 on your bat.



Time to Play!

  • Sit down with your child and hand them the white crayon.
  • Say a number and have them find it and draw a circle around it.



  • When you've gone through all the numbers, you can then point to each number and have your child practice saying them.


LB(4) had a lot of fun with this!
He's pretty good with counting, but always gets tripped up with numbers 13-16, so this was a fun way for him to review the hard ones!

Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)
