Don’t toss your empty cardboard boxes. If you have packages from Amazon or any other online store, then you can reuse those boxes, for many children activities and lessons. Homemade materials can be very effective in teaching, making games and helping lessons.
Step 1 – Gather your cardboard boxes.
Step 2 – Use a guillotine or scissors to cut the pieces to size. Cut all the pieces the same size (height and length).Step 3 – Punch a hole at the short side of the cardboard strips. Repeat step for all the pieces. Put an album screw through the holes of each cardboard, then secure the back with the small screw. Album screws are the same as scrapbooking screws. These can be purchased on Amazon and can be used for many projects.Step 4 – After the cardboard strips are attached and securely fastened, add punch holes to each strip. I added the holes before stamping the numbers on.
Step 6 – Stamp the numbers that correspond with holes punched on each strip. I got the number stampers some years ago but here are similar ones.
When finished use in your preschool math lessons. A great way to teach toddlers and preschoolers number recognition.
A quick fun way to recycle materials, add play and discovery, best of all ….it’s homemade. Bonus, preschoolers can use these to practice lacing, lacing help young children develop better fine motor skill.
Here’s hoping you will have fun making one for your little one (s). Miss Sue 🙂
