Another month and another fun Busy Bag idea! Last month we shared Rainbow Color and Shape Match Up. This month we have a Butterfly Counting Activity busy bag to share with you all. I have been having a lot of fun using my stash of felt for these busy bags. I got into it again this month and made some butterflies. I love finding fun ways to get little brother counting. This butterfly busy bag was perfect. Hands on learning is usually a hit at my house.
Butterfly Counting Activity
What I used / supplies:
felt in pink, purple, blue, and white
What I did/ how to make:
I stacked the five pieces of colored felt. I put one on top of the other. I took my pencil and traced a butterfly out on the white felt. I then cut the butterflies out while still stacked. I was in a hurry so only wanted to cut once. Once I had them cut out I grabbed the sharpies. I wrote out numbers 1-10 on the felt butterflies. I took scrap felt and cut out antennas. I used the hot glue gun to attach the antennas to the butterflies.
Now we had our Butterfly Counting Activity ready to go! I sat all 10 of the felt butterflies out on the table, a cork board, and a bowl of pom poms. Now little brother sat down to start counting out pom poms to go with his felt butterflies.
This is a great activity to use for color matching. You can also let them make patterns with the felt butterflies and pom poms. I am thinking big brother could use them and do some addition and subtractions problems too. We will try to get as much use out of them as we can.
