Gumball Counter Art Project
Get creative with this fun counting activity! Color in circles in groups of ten to easily reach 100.
Supplies used: Colored Pencils, Crayons or Markers, Liquid Adhesive, Scissors, Construction Paper (Optional),
- Die-cut out of desired shades of cardstock or construction paper all the elements on the Gumball Machine – XL die. Additionally die-cut one gumball machine from a light blue or white cardstock or construction paper.
- Along the dotted lines above and below the gumball dome, trim away the center round jar from the white or light blue gumball machine.
- Assemble and adhere the white or light blue dome and all the other die cut elements on top of the other gumball machine base, gluing everything in to place with liquid adhesive.
- Give one assembled gumball machine to each student (or give them the die cut pieces to assemble themselves) along with coloring items. Each student will then color ten circles in ten different colors on the gumball machine dome to practice counting to 100 in groups of ten. You can choose to instruct the students to group the circles in the gumball machine, or color them in scattered around. By changing the colors every count of ten the students will be able to keep count easily.
