Two great books to introduce numbers: "Bean Thirteen" by Matthew McElligott and "Missing Math" by Loreen Leedy. We talked about how great numbers are and why we need them/how we use them. Then we make these homemade fingerpaints from
http://www.pbs.org/parents/earlymath/act_p_paint.html and did some color by numbers.
Snack: nachos or nuts
Note to self: The fingerpaints need lots of time to cool down and were pretty messy but fun.
