Can you fill in the numbers that are missing? This is a fun way to practice counting and number recognition. When the child is first starting use the 3 number strips. As their counting and number recognition skills grow use the 5 number strips.
Number Gaps Printable (includes twelve 3 number strips 1-10, twelve 3 number strips 10-20, seven 5 number strips 1-10, seven 5 number strips 10-20 )
First print out the number gaps printable. Next cut up the rows of numbers. I like to laminate the strips so they last longer.
Grab your bottle tops and write the numbers 1-20 on them. You will need 2 sets for all the strips (so 40 tops). You can also just make 1 set of numbers and take the tops off as they do a strip.
Now you are ready to play!

Next Kysen did the 5 number strips. First the single digits then the teens.
