Learning Bag: Apple Tree Number Game

It seems like all the activities I've wanted to do with the girls have been focused on apples lately, and I thought this would make a simple learning activity.  You can store it easily in a plastic bag.

  • White paper
  • Green paper
  • Brown paper or bag
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker
  • Notecards
  • Red pom-poms


1)  Cut a sheet of white construction paper in half.  Make a tree (we used green paper for the top and a paper bag for the trunk).  Glue it to the white paper.

2)  Write numbers from 1-10 on notecards.  On the back of the notecards, draw corresponding dots for each number.


We play this as a game.  One person draws a card and puts the number of "apples" (pom-poms) on the tree.  The other person turns the notecard over and places each pom-pom from the tree on a dot to check for accuracy.

You can also use this as a single person activity -- just have your child put the number of apples on the tree, and then he can check his own work by putting the pom-poms on the dots!
