Counting Ballerinas

I am not a big fan of keeping gift bags. However, my little sister gave Arin a gift this week (thank you) and the gift bag had ballerinas all over it. It's been a while since we have done any "school" and I think that Arin and I are both missing it. So when I saw the ballerinas, I decided to make it into a game for school. I cut out all of the ballerinas (all of the ones that you could see all of their body). Then, I glued the ballerinas onto cardstock. One ballerina on one piece of paper, two on another, three on another and so on up to nine because that's all the whole ballerinas I had. Next, I stenciled the numbers 1-9 on index cards. The purpose of this game is for Arin to count the ballerinas and then match the correct number to the amount of ballerinas.

Today, I had to take my car to get the a/c fixed, so we brought this game with us and played it while we waited. Arin did enjoy the game, but I think she would have played it longer in our home setting, so we'll try it again sometime.
