Counting Fruits: Toddler Finger Painting

How many apples are there in the fruit basket? How many oranges? Create artwork and develop one to one correspondence as your child fills the fruit baskets with fruit.

This experience encourages children to practice forward counting and hand-eye coordination as they aim to place fruits in the fruit baskets. You can prompt conversations during this experience about what your child's favourite fruit is, and what colour is it? 

Combining a love of painting and counting, this activity is sure to be a favourite! Click the program below to open a printable PDF version.
