Hot Chocolate Math Activity
Print these twenty colorful hot chocolate cups and get out some mini-marshmallows.
Yes, the mini-marshmallows will be a real motivator.
You can also use white pom poms, which are much more expensive than mini-marshmallows but are also much less tempting.
This printable has twenty colorful cups of hot chocolate, labeled 1-20. These are good for my Two, because he needs a lot of work with one-to-one correspondence. After he counts items to three, he starts losing count. So we’ll keep doing more of this kind of thing until he has it down!
For my Four, this is just a quick fun thing for him to do. It’s below his ability level right now, which is why you’ll find more challenging activities in my post Letter H Math.
I’ve had a request for the printable with the numbers on the cup instead of on the hot chocolate. These are in the second part of the download.
I also had a request for black and white cups so kids can color them. You’ll find these at the end of the download.
P.S. These were one of my first printables, created in MS Word. Because of that, it was difficult to add new versions into the original file without leaving extra spaces after #9-10 and #19-20. Thanks for understanding!
