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.

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