Next, have your child pick 3 different colors from a box of crayons. On the top of each page have them write (one color per page) the number that they will be counting by. For example on the counting by 2’s page, have your child write the number 2 at the top. They will then need to count and color by 2s. They will need to repeat the same process for 5s and 10s. They can use these charts to touch and count when practicing this skill, until they eventually will no longer need the charts. (2) M&M Fun: You will need to go to the store and purchase a large bag of M&Ms for this activity. Place the M& Ms’ in a large bowl in front of child.
