Number Wands

Here is a fun activity to help with your counting skills.

To make your wand:

  • Using a wooden skewer or tightly rolled up piece of paper make a stick shape.
  • Cut out a star shape and glue that to the top of your stick.
  • Write on a number that is less than 20.

Look at the number and thread that many beads on to your number wand.

Link this activity to our work on subtraction by threading the number of beads which are one less than the number on the star.
