Count and Sort Posting Box Math Game is designed for children who are working on improving their fine motor skills, problem solving, and visual perceptual skill development. This posting box can be used as a resource for early counting and sorting.  The enduring appeal of dropping and poking through holes will make this a real favorite game with toddlers to school age kids, with possibilities to extend the learning for the older age group.

Technical Specifications: 
  1. For this activity we used a range of jar lids and bottle tops in various diameters and thicknesses.
  2. The coins were sorted these into groups by size then covered the front of each group with matching colors, using paper and a glue stick. 
  3. Using a craft knife, cut slots into the base of a shoe box and make them fit the size and width of each group of lids.
  4. Cut some pieces from the leftover paper and stuck them around each hole as an indicator of which one belonged where.
  5. Write the corresponding number of lids next to each color slot. The author deliberately used the numbers 1-5 to keep it simple but this could easily be extended to larger teen numbers and beyond (if you have enough bottle tops!)
