Make some "Number Cans" to teach numeric concepts to your kids.
Cover empty vegetable tins with construction paper. Number the cans from 1 to 10 and draw dots on with a marker or crayon. Set out craft sticks or drinking straws. Help your child count the number of dots on the cans and place the right number of sticks inside them.

This is a great tip. I am doing certification for K-4 and this can be a great activity in any of the K-2 grade areas. Thanks for the suggestion.
