Numbers 1, 2 & 3

Today i took out a few random toys in units of 1, 2 & 3. I asked my 2 year old simple number related questions:
How many yellow pegs on the board
How many eyes does the duck have
And so on…
By having them pick up and put down objects its strengthens their understanding of numbers because they are incorporating their sense of touch into the whole exercise. They are not merely processing the information we are giving them through looking at the number and hearing us shout it out but they are adding a physical value to that number as well.
