Babies
The Birth of a Book Habit


Counting Activities


  • Math activities are so fun and simple for babies. Something as simple as Cheerios can encourage basic math skills such as counting, sorting, stacking, hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. These basic skills are important for everyday life, but also encourage education and literacy skills as baby grows.
  • Count with your baby. Count the items you see, “I see 4 cars.” You can also count everyday scenarios, such as playing on the swings, steps, stairs, bites of food or cereal on their high chair. Number words are amazing for little ones to hear all throughout the day.
