Extending this activity

  • -Young children require a lot of practice counting. Providing opportunities for them to count items in their everyday life make it more fun and meaningful. Count as many items as you can think of! Have them count the buttons on their clothes. Ask them to count the number of people in front of them when waiting in line at the store.

    -Counting books are another fun way to practice counting. Read “1,2,3, to the Zoo” by Eric Carle.

Adjust for an older child

Instead of spreading the grapes out, find two different glasses: a tall, skinny glass and a short glass. Place the child’s ten grapes in the short glass and the parent’s ten grapes in a tall glass. Ask the child who has more.

Adjust for a younger child

Start out with only five grapes. Allow the child to count the grapes the parent has, match up his or her own grapes, and count again.
