Stack Your Cereal

Gather Play-Doh®, spaghetti noodles, a paper plate, and Cheerios® or another type of circular cereal, poured in a bowl.

Make two small mounds of Play-Doh on the plate.

 Take two strands of the spaghetti noodles and break them into different heights, a tall one and a short one, and stick them in a mound of Play-Doh standing up.

Let your child put pieces of cereal on each of the spaghetti noodles until they are almost filled to the top.

Talk about how this stack has a little and this stack has a lot. We can share when we have a little or a lot. Ask if they will share some of the cereal from the big stack and give it to the little stack. Now, share some of the cereal from the little stack to the big stack.
