Ghosts and Pumpkins

This is an easy to make, early math counting manipulative.  Just color with permanent marker one side of Lima beans orange and on the other side make a ghost's face.  You can cover a yogurt cup with paper or you can just use a plastic cup.  The child puts the Lima beans in the cup, shakes them like dice, and pours them out on the table.  They count how many ghosts, and how many pumpkins.  You ask which is more or which is less.  You can change the amount of beans in the cup after a few shakes.

Easy and cheap just the way we like it.
