I drew a line down the middle of a ziplock bag and filled the bag with water and 5 beads. I would say “Can you put 1 bead on this side and 4 beads on the other side?”

This activity introduces and enforces the different combinations of 5. It would also be a great activity to practice with “left” and “right” and/or to put in 10 beads and work with combinations of 10.

Great activity! My preschooler is going to love this one. He loves anything squidgy and messy or potentially messy! Thanks for sharing!
