    Find patterned wrapping paper or scrapbook paper to help your kids with estimation I purposefully picked papers that had patterns that were complicated so the kids couldnt count the figures one-by-one. I hang these up was posters with signs that say "How many ________ can you see?" The goal is for them to come up with some estimation strategies instead of counting the objects individually.

Estimating-Fun activity, could start at 3, still great as KD or 1st grade for practice in estimating. Write your guess, then open and count, write your count beside the estimate. FUN, different, and good. MamaPat

Estimating number sense activity...Like the idea of having 2 'known' jars and one 'guess' jar. Great idea!
