Little Sis LOVES to count; she loves to tell me how old she is, how old baby brother is, and that I need to read 3 more books at night because she is not going to bed yet! And so I came up with an idea to work on 1:1 Correspondence, but it also happened to reinforce shapes and color matching skills, too-- Rings On Fingers Counting Activity.

Hands-on Preschool Counting ActivityThe only thing you need for this activity is a package of cheap rings. I purchased a bag of 18 from Party City.
I placed them in a tray and invited Little Sis to come over to the table with me and explore. And since she loves all things "sparkly," she loved this simple preschool math activity.
We counted as she put a ring on each finger, which reinforces 1:1 Correspondence.
We counted as she took them off her fingers.
We counted forwards.
We counted backwards.
I even introduced simple story problems!
