Math Game using Avocado Arts images {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**Please click HERE for my RCC#54 challenge post. 

Today the Avocado Arts Pit Crew have created some amazing projects to share with you! We all used the AA May stamp set, Thoughts and Smiles Be sure to stop by the AA blog for more information and LOTS more inspiration!

I made a children's game for today's project. I used some of my Basic Grey PB & J papers for my number pieces and the box to hold the instructions/etc {available HERE from StopandScrap}. I stamped that little Avocado Arts ladybug image about 80 times! I laminated everything and cut it out. I love that you can use these AA images for just about anything! 

**My advice for making these ladybug game pieces-- print off a paper with 1" squares, stamp images and spray with Workable Fixatif, color each image and spray again, laminate, and then cut out. Spraying this image with the fixatif each time prevents any smearing! 
Here's the game packaged up in a white sheer bag. It's perfect for my little friends:)

I made this game for some of my little friends! They loooooooooove Math, and I knew this would help them with their operations and counting. I took some pictures of them playing with their new game. 

Game ideas for ages 2-4: The kids could count the ladybug pieces to match the number that they've drawn from the game pack. 
Game ideas for ages 4+: There are several Math operations printed on the game pieces. Have the kids pick out one operation and two numbers. Ask the kids to match up the ladybugs for each number and then figure out the math problem. {6+4= 10}
Ilana has also matched up ladybugs for her answer:) Toooooo cute! 
I couldn't resist sharing this pic! These are the cutest kids ever:) 

That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the AA blog for more details and inspiration. And don't forget to check out my other teammates' blogs! You are going to love what they share today!!!!
