Counting Cupcakes!

A super fun fine motor activity!

Ellie loves cupcakes (who doesn't?) so when I saw  individual plastic cupcake holders at the Dollar Store I knew I had to buy them!

After some brainstorming I decided to make them into a matching math game.  Using a permanent marker I drew dots on top of each cupcake container and wrote the corresponding number on the base (as well as the number word on the back side and the same number of dots on the inside of the base).  Then, I visited my good buddy Amazon and purchased miniature scented cupcake erasers that could be counted and placed inside the containers and lo and behold my DIY Counting Cupcakes were born!

$3.00 for 6 cupcake containers (2/$1) + $6.69 for 24 scented cupcake erasers = $9.69

UNDER $10!!


(If you want, you can add a cupcake tin from Dollar Store if you don't already own one.)
