I realized recently, that although my youngest can count quite high, she is having some trouble recognizing written numbers. Although, I'm quite sure she will learn them eventually, through playing games, and having numbers pointed out to her around the house, and around town, I found a simple activity in Janice Vancleave's Play and Find Out About Math, Easy Activities for Young Children, that I thought she would enjoy, today.
I cut out the numbers 1 to 11 from cereal box cardboard. I would like to have cut more, but I ran out of empty cereal boxes, so I imagine we'll return to this activity again.
Then, I gave the numbers to C, with an assortment of stickers, and asked her to put the correct number of stickers on each number. Her brothers, and sisters were more than happy to help her when she got stuck, since I usually keep the stickers put away.
I also cut out addition, and equal signs, so when we have a bigger set of sticker covered, numbers, they can be used as addition manipulatives.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
