If You Give a Cat a Cupcake - Sprinkle Counting Activity {Virtual Book Club For Kids}

We had such a hard time with this one this month.
1. my printer is not working with color
2. my original plan was a puzzle (under partial request from little man)
3. little man was not interested if it did not involve a puzzle... Finally got him to color!

The book we picked was If You Give a Cat a Cupcake. *affiliate link*

But now, we have it! It's a counting game using sprinkles, a cupcake printout coloring page and dice of some kind. We used punched cardstock in the shape of flowers but you can use sprinkles and then eat the sprinkles when you are done! ;)

  • roll the dice and count out the number of sprinkles/punches and place on cupcake like sprinkles. We started with 6 on the cupcake and worked on taking away and adding to.
  • eat sprinkles, or, glue down the final amount of punches.
