Counting skills and an open-ended creative activity rolled into one. A STEAM activity for preschool, pre-k, prep, and kindergarten. Kids select cards to determine how many objects to add to their maker mats. They can then make a creation with the materials. Perfect for your math centers or math workstations, fine motor centers, or art center or maker space. Use as an independent or small group activity. Cards for many materials have been provided (1-20) to give you a great deal of flexibility. Add play dough for a 3-dimensional design twist. Plus, ideas for fine motor activities are included.
The set includes the following:
✔ full page maker mats (5 colors and b&w)
✔ 1-20 numbered material cards for 13 different materials
**All printables include full color and black and white options
