Pick an Apple for Math Lessons

Above you will see a very cute apple tree that I cut out with the Cricut machine. You could also have your child just draw and color a tree. Once the tree was ready I found some red pony beads and used those as apples.

The game is played with two people. Person one will roll a die and whichever number comes up (1-6) is the number of apples they will remove from the tree. Then the second person will go and they continue to alternate turns until all of the apples have been picked.

Once all of the apples have been picked the person with the most apples wins the game. This is lots of fun in our house and my son always wants to count my apples and his.

Have a great time playing and counting.
