Estimation is a very important part of the math logic. Having the understanding of knowing if the final result makes sense or not is key in getting the right answer. This is a perfect challenge for little ones to practice this skill while also having a lot fun!


  • Easy


  • Two clear cups or containers

  • Objects to count


  1. Start off by having one container filled with the objects and letting the kids know how many objects it has inside.

  2. Fill up the second container with less or more objects so the kids can guess.

  3. Set up several different of these scenarios and see who can guess the closest amount for each object.
