Jelly Bean Counting Game
1, 2, 3, 4—you'll wish you had played this easy DIY game before!
Hi, Malty friends! ✨
We have a super simple, super fun DIY game for you today, and we can't begin to count all the reasons we love it! 😉
This activity is great for children learning their numbers in a second language, and you can easily increase the difficulty over time—or even use it to teach money counting skills. Overall, this is a fantastic supplement to the number vocabulary your child will learn in Malty the Blue Tiger (Marita la tigresita azul).
You likely have all of the materials already: cupcake liners, a marker, and jelly beans (or any other little snack). Have a blast! And if you'd like, snap a photo of your little one practicing with this game—we'll share it if you tag Malty on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!
Hugs and roars,
Your Malty Friends 💙

Set out six (or more!) cupcake liners.
Label each with a number.
In random order, say each number out loud in Spanish (or another second language). Ask your little tiger to add the correct number of jelly beans to each cupcake liner!
