I made this bin out of cotton balls and colorful paper numbers. My son can explore this bin in his own way independently or use it as a number activity. The purpose of the activity is to have my son search through the cotton balls and learn to identify and say each number. I thought it was a great idea to make a number line with the numbers he pulled from the bin to practice number sequencing and to use the cotton balls as counters too.
