Digging for
Turtle Eggs


Write on a ping pong ball a number you wish to reinforce. On another ping pong ball show a matching number of dots. Include as many numbers and dots as you wish to teach. Bury the balls in your sand box or sand table. Invite children to dig for "turtle eggs," matching the numbered eggs to the eggs with the correct number of dots.
