What to Do

Begin by downloading and printing the gumball counting playdough mats. We recently signed up for the HP Instant Ink program and are loving it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them. We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty printing out new printables and playdough mats each day. If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you 3 free months. You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices). Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.

Once you’ve printed, laminated, and cut out your cupcake counting cards and numbered cherries, it’s time to have some fun!

Cupcake Counting Cards Playtime

To play, lay out your cupcake and cherry cards (and playdough or buttons if you’d like) and ask your child to place the correctly numbered cherry on top of the cupcake with that same number of sprinkles. We also included blank cupcakes so that you could use those either alone or along with playdough or buttons to create your own “sprinkles.”

I’ll admit, I had a BLAST with these cupcake counting cards. The kids did too, of course. 🙂

This activity would also pair well with the book, “If You Give a Cat a Cupcake.”

You could also use these sheets with dry erase markers and draw your gumballs on.
