The "Corny" Counting Game

We played the "Corny" Counting Game on our Fruit and Vegetable day. With this game, I set out styrofoam food trays with numbers written on each section. A little bowl full of popcorn kernals and then tweezers. I wish I had some large plastic tweezers, but we compromised with regular tweezers.
This game is great for one-to-one correspondance, counting, small motor development (squeezing the tweezers), and hand eye coordination.
This is how I had the game set up.......some trays had numbers, and some trays had dots.
