Fall Light Table Activity for Kids to Explore Math

For this math light table activity, we used:

Label the clear cups with numbers using the permanent marker (you can see them here). We had cups from 1 to 20. Then place two cups on the light table. Count the corresponding number of pumpkins into the cups. Then dump both cups onto the plate at the end of the math problem. Then count up all the pumpkins on the plate to find out the answer! Smaller kids will enjoy the scooping and dumping part of this activity, which is great for working on fine motor skills.
