What you will need:

Arrange craft sticks straight next to each other and place a Shamrock cutout on top. (You may secure craft sticks with a tape on the other side.)

Glue the Shamrock cutout to craft sticks with a glue gun. (You can also draw a Shamrock.)

Prime the area where you will be writing numbers with a clear nail polish to prevent the writings from bleeding (running and spreading).

Once the glue dried, carefully cut along the craft sticks’ edges with a craft knife.

The control of error: the child can self-correct and practice math skills by skip counting by tens. Also, if assembled correctly, the child will marvel at the shamrock leaf.

Prep time: under 5 minutes.
Skills: numeracy, skip counting and number recognition, spatial awareness, problem-solving, left to right progression, hand-eye coordination, concentration and more.
