Celebrate Numbers in Honor of July 4th!

Your young child might not understand that it’s America’s birthday, but the July 4th holiday is a terrific reason to celebrate all numbers from 1-4. If you’re at a barbecue, count the plastic spoons together up to four. Put four burgers on a plate and count them. Pull up four chairs to your table. Count whatever you can in groups of four for the fourth!
