Welcome to Day 2 of Learn with Your Craft Stash! Today we are sharing learning activities that can be created with cupcake liners! This Counting Money cupcake liner game is just one of the many fun ways that you can use cupcake liners to learn!
Materials needed for the Counting Money Cupcake Liner Game:
10-20 Cupcake liners (depending on skill level of the child)
1 Pom pom
Lots of coins
How to prepare the game:
Write a money value in the bottom of each cupcake liner.
Arrange the cupcake liners randomly on a table or on the floor.
How to use:
Have the child sit in front of the cupcake liners and toss the pom pom into them.
When the pom pom lands in a liner, have the child demonstrate the money value written on the bottom of the cupcake liner with the least amount of coins possible.
Remove the pom pom and toss again. (Repeating the same values, will reinforce the coin combinations.)
If you want to keep score:
Give one point for each value that is correctly made.
Give 5 bonus points for creating five money values in a row successfully.
Your stopping point will depend on the skill level and focus of the child.
Alternatively, you can provide the child with the same amount of pom poms as cupcake liners and have them play until each amount has been done.
