Do your kids love to count?

Our sons love counting things, like when my 6-year-old was learning to count to 1000 with chocolate chips or using his daily Minecraft Counting Book, or when our preschooler was learning to count to 100 with snap cubes! But this was one of the easiest math lessons we have done yet!

3. In a notebook or on a piece of paper, make a note of how many you have. You could also use a graph, but because this was an impromptu counting activity, which is what we love to do while unschooling, this works. Add up your total and see how many you have in your box!
