I have been saving our milk caps… for a while. I figured I could do something fun with them. Well, this past week we got to 25 milk caps, so I figured it was plenty for a fun project. I decided to make a milk cap math game. On the top of the milk caps, I wrote the numbers, 1-25.
We have some number flash cards that we lined up in order, then we matched the milk cap numbers with the cards. It was great number practice for my preschooler. Plus, my first grader enjoyed helping her!
There are so many more things you could do with this. The blog Love2Learn2Day has some other fun ideas that I liked. I also though it would be fun to do an alphabet set as well. (Spelling games?) However, my kids want the numbers to go all the way to 100 first. They think it would be so cool!
I also just discovered- thanks to Google this cute site- Tot School that has some fun milk cap printables. She has some alphabet games and some number games that go along with her milk caps sets. Very cute!
Maybe this will get your mind going & thinking of all the fun things you can do with bottle caps- you could substitute any kind, really… So, start saving those bottle caps!
