Lollipop Stick Shapes
Here's an idea I just had to put into practice! I found it here and adapted it slightly for my own ends.
First, the children who were present sorted the sticks into their colours and then counted them according to the numbers on the sticks to check they were all there. They then found the matching coloured shape and attempted to border the shapes. My 3 year old, as usual, decided it would be a good idea to throw the lollipop sticks around the room, but we were able to gather them and check they were all there by counting the numbers again! Needless to say the event was accompanied by us singing renditions of the song 'Lollipop'!
