- Con-Tact Paper
- Permanent Marker
- Felt Numbers (I found my felt numbers in the Target Dollar Spot section, but these ones look similar)
To make this simple number matching chart, draw a grid on a piece of Con-Tact paper. Add dots to represent the numbers 1 – 9.
After peeling off the back of the Con-Tact paper, tape it to the wall (sticky side out) and get ready for this simple number activity to begin!
The goal: match the felt numeral to the correct quantity of dots.
My son (3.5) loved this activity and we left it up for almost a week. It was a great quick activity to turn to when he needed a simple “filler” type activity.
I loved watching him count the number of dots then look for the felt numeral to add to the sticky wall.
