I had 5 plastic bottles lying around at home and began by washing them and taking off the labels. I then cut them down with a craft knife and used scissors to cut door ways out of them. Make sure you cut the door ways big enough to fit the cars you are using.
I then drew some windows and plants with a permanent marker, and of course the numbers from 1-5.
I was planning on using this activity on the light table but you could use it anywhere, even in the sand pit!
I used some little plastic trucks I had in the classroom which were a perfect size. I stuck the numbers 1-5 on the trucks, added a paper street, some trees and some coloured counters and we were ready to play.
The children put the houses in the correct order and drove the trucks and cars into the matching house. I encouraged the children to count the correct number of counters and put them in the trucks.
The only problem we had was that everyone wanted to play at the light table all at the same time!
