Set the Table: How Many Napkins?

Having your preschooler help set the table is a great way to foster responsibility and to teach basic math. Ask your child to count as she sets one plate for each person, two of this kind of cup and one of that kind, one baby fork and two big-people forks, three napkins, and so on.
