Make Milk Carton Counting Houses
Most five-year-olds master counting out loud long before they walk into kindergarten. This is always exciting to watch, but it doesn’t mean that kids truly understand what numbers mean. Kindergarten teachers want to make sure that kids can count objects, but also connect groups of things to abstract numbers. This whimsical craft helps kids do just that, and reuses empty milk cartons to boot.
What You Need:
- Empty and washed 1 cup milk or juice cartons
- Tape or glue
- Colored construction paper
- Fine-line markers
- Ice cream sticks or craft sticks
