Eyeballs and bats....oh my! I found some foam bats at Michael's and wanted to make a fun matching game out of them. I was trying to think of what I could glue on them, that would be fun for the kids to count....GOOGLY EYES!!!!!!! Who doesn't love googly eyes?
To prep this eyeball counting center, I just glued on googly eyes to the foam bats and puffy painted a matching number for each. It took me about 10 minutes to make a whole counting set.
The kids get to count the googly eyes, and match it to the correct number. Whenever I am first teaching the little ones how to count, I make them touch each item they are counting. This helps them make sure they they don't miss one.
This hands on math center is fun for them, perfect for a seasonal center, and SpOoKy enough to keep their attention!
