On the other hand, except for the absence of bright stimulating colours, clay was perfect! I got out the clay and brought out a rolling pin and a cutting board and cookie cutters.
S made monster trucks from the clay. After that we used it for counting:
1. The number of trucks
2. The number of wheels on each truck (2 in this case, and not 4 like the real truck)
3. The total number of wheels
4. Identify the truck with the smallest, medium sized and largest wheel.
