Hey there! I homeschool my two tots, 2 and 3 years old. We are in that early preschool stage, so I created this printable with all kinds of occasions in mind. My original thought was to title this the Cheerio Counting Mat, as I started my girls using cheerios. However, once Valentines Day rolled around, we were using conversation hearts. We used little gold coins with shamrocks on them from the Dollar Tree for St. Patricks Day. You get the idea. This may be a simple counting mat printable, but you can easily jazz it up with a little theme by using different manipulatives or treats as counters. I do recommend you laminate these sheets as some foods can get sticky! Enjoy!
