In preparation for Earth Day we are doing lots of trash-to-treasure projects! Meet Robby— he’s actually a counting game disguised as a lovable little robot!
-thirty buttons in various sizes
-three recycled tins (at least one with a lid for game piece storage)
-paper for game cards & tin wrap
-roll of self adhesive magnet tape
Project takes about thirty minutes… while I was whipping up Robby, Emerson made some button art and Mason made a guitar from an egg box. Adhere paper to tins with a thin coat of modge podge and add a small slice of magnetic tape to the back of each button.
Count by 10s
Count by 5s (shown above left)
Count by 2s
Add (Example 5+2=___ child would put 5 buttons on top tin, 2 on middle & 7 on bottom)
Free Time (create your own robot)
Small, Medium, Large (organize buttons by size)
The coffee tin is the perfect size for storing the smaller game pieces. Robby says go make a recycled art project for Earth Day!!!!
