We have thousands of items for the children to sort, create patterns and count (I'm not kidding). What can you use at home? Anything-coins, Legos, cereal, snacks (Cheerio, Cheez-it, Cheerio, Cheez-it), crayons, markers, all those pony beads in the craft bin...anything.
Sort items. Create patterns and count. Have some fun finding things to sort and pattern with your child.
