This game is a great way to introduce your child to counting, addition and subtraction while getting in a healthy snack at the same time. Put out a counted number of dry cereal pieces such as 10, on a table in front of your child while keeping more handy in a bowl out of sight. Count each piece as you slowly move it closer to your child.
For example, put your finger on one piece of cereal and say, "This is one" while you move it closer to your child. Next, put your finger on another piece of cereal and move that one next to the first saying, "Plus one makes two. This is one, two." Follow this until all 10 are in front of your child. If she hasn't eaten any yet, ask her to choose one to eat and then count the pieces that are left. Add some more from your reserve bowl. When they are all eaten the game is finished.
