I use these cute mini popsicle sticks I found at the dollar store. My neighboring teachers use Q-tips and toothpicks. Or you can find them here on Amazon.
The game is played this way:
Student shakes the Penny Cup.
Heads = 1 stick, Tails = no stick
The object is to fill up your mat correctly, so that the sticks "tally" the number in the rectangle.
First person to do so wins!
The mats are already 8.5 x 11 inches. Just click on the pictures below, save, and print! I've also included the template, in case you want to make more of your own.
