SINKING LILY PADS
We use frog beanbags or plastic frogs, however you can print and laminate frog pictures for all the children to hold. You will also need some large lily pads (A4 size is fine)
This activity requires the children to place a frog on a lily pad, however each lily pad will only fit a maximum number of 4 frogs before it sinks!
You will need: 6 lily pads for 24 children
Show the children how to place a frog carefully (not throwing) on the lily pad . Work your way around the circle until all of the frogs have been safely placed.
Talk to the children and ask them which lily pad is safe or which pad is now full. Have fun with numeracy, as you alter the task. Maybe each lily pad can fit one more? Or, there might be a spare lily pad.. How many frogs can we fit?
