This is a fast, fun, easy, and timely idea shared by Anna, from The Measured Mom. She created these free printable mats to help her three-year-old with counting and number recognition. As you can see, the counting mats feature numbered nests that kids can fill with pretend eggs (which happened to be brightly colored gems). This is a great activity to use for spring and even for Easter!
