Easter counting competition

Give each child an empty plastic Easter egg and ask them to fill it with as many objects as they can.

Count the objects to see who has the most. Organise the objects so that children can see how many there are without counting in ones. Put the objects onto the Numicon ten-shape, organise the objects so that they look like the Numicon shapes (see below) or put them on a ten frame.
