Materials Needed for Mitten Math

To Prep:

To prepare mitten math, count out five to ten craft foam mittens and write numerals on the bottom using a permanent marker. Then count out enough foam snowflake stickers for each mitten. Arrange the foam mittens and snowflake stickers in a wooden tray as an easy invitation to play.

How to Play:

When your toddler or preschooler is ready for playful learning with Mitten Math have them take out all the mittens from the wooden tray and arrange them in numerical order. Younger children might need some help with this part.

Then they can decorate the mittens by counting out snowflake stickers and sticking them on the mittens to match the numbers. Removing the backs of the snowflake stickers is a great fine motor challenge for preschoolers.
