I bought these fantastic scissor grip scoops-(I have no idea what they are called!!) at Christmas and have been dying to use them.
They could be used with pom poms, bottle tops, rice, peas, sand- really anything. I used them this week in the water trolley with ping pong balls for a fun number activity.
Here are the scoops!!
I wrote the numbers 1-10 on a few packets of ping pong balls.
I also wrote the numbers 1-10 on plastic cups and tied them together with string.
The children tried to pick up a ball and then put it in the corresponding cup.
Tip them out and start again...
The children loved this activity. You should try it.
