Muffin Counting

Muffin Counting


With this preschool activity we are counting muffins. Well, to be more precise, we will be counting the blueberries in a muffin. While I can’t remember exactly if the story tells us what Little Red took to grandma in her basket, I like to believe she took grandma muffins. And blueberry muffins are my favorite, so blueberry muffins it is.

With his preschool activity, your child will identify a written number and add the corresponding value.
