Pot of Gold Counting With Pouch Caps

St. Patrick's Day Counting Activity for Kids Using Pouch Cap Lids

Looking to make counting and practicing numbers fun and engaging for your kids? We broke out our ever famous pouch caps and did a little St. Patrick’s day counting. This activity was so simple and literally took me 2 minutes to set up. If you don’t already save your pouch lids you must begin now. We use these lids for all sorts of things from throwing them in sensory bins, to using them as counters, to using them as art materials. The possibilities are endless.

Practice counting with this fun hands on engaging activity perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Kids will identify numbers and then use pouch caps to count that the number of "gold" to add to their pot.
