Make learning math FUN with this Pom-pom Ice Cream Scoop Math Activity! It’s quick and easy to set-up and you’ll only need 4 supplies!
Math can be tricky to learn. Preschoolers don’t always seem to be thrilled when seeing bland math problems on a piece of paper. Who does, right?! My almost 5 year is currently learning numbers, addition and subtraction and we do math quite often in our house. I know she’s a visual learner, like most kids, which means whenever we’re learning numbers and math problems I need to write out the sums, counts and totals. In this activity we’re using pom-poms, which are fun, fluffy and colorful. My daughter loved it!
