Cut out a playdough egg or have your child cut one out.
Let your child pick a number stamp and stamp the playdough egg. Have child name the number and count and place the matching amount of gems on the egg.
Another way to play would be for you to place the gems on the egg and have your child count them, and choose the correct stamp to stamp the playdough egg with.
When the activity is over it’s a perfect time to let your preschooler get creative with the supplies and come up with their own activity.
