Growing up, I remember seeing lots of cartoons with people counting sheep as they dreamed, and I vaguely remember trying this myself as a means to fall asleep. Did it work? I can’t recall. But I do think that sheep hopping over a fence is awfully cute.
This simple activity is designed to do several things, all while looking like those sweet sheep. It’s good for teaching fine motor skills, pre-reading, and basic math, and with a bit of guidance from you, your child will soon find lots of ways to play as they learn!
