Count the House

Count the House
I found this “Count the House” printable at Let’s Explore.

B had such a great time racing around the house and counting these items. I lightly wrote the number in the box and he traced it. Looking at the picture, we sure do have a lot of chairs and rooms! I didn’t think the definition of what made up a room and whether it was an adult chair, kid’s chair, or bouncie chair really mattered. I thought it was just neat to have fun counting.
When we finished he said “Let’s do it again!”. I liked the convenience of printing this activity ahead of time to have on hand. However, this activity could also be customized to fit your home or specific room by just getting out a piece of paper and drawing 4-6 items to count in your house.
Make sure to take a look at all of our other Counting Activities for Kids!

Awesome! Thanks for providing the link - my daughter is a lot more interested in "meaningful activities" than in random worksheets.

The Mom I Want To Be

Great idea :) I printed out 2 copies, one for our house and one for the rental house that we're staying at on vacation next week. We'll do the rental first, and I'll ask my son to estimate the number of some things at home, and guess which house has the greater number of windows, etc. Then we can finish the activity when we come home!
