Kathy Ross Crafts Numbers
From the Series Learning Is Fun!
These number-based crafts are designed to help children remember the shape and the concept of numbers one through ten. Beginning with a One and Only Me craft and ending with a Ten in an Envelope Bed, each number has its own special project. Then there are a series of projects that show the many ways in which numbers are used, such as a Play Cell Phone, a Play Alarm Clock, Coin Family Puppets, and Mama Foot-Long Worm and Her Twelve Baby Inchworms. In developing these hands-on projects, Kathy Ross drew on her thirty years’ experience as a preschool teacher and curriculum developer. Each of the twenty easy-to-make crafts features step-by-step illustrated instructions, and is made from easy-to-find household materials.
