Prep the activity by coloring in the circles on our printable that will be used in the graphing activity.

If you have rainbow bear counters, you or your child will color the circles, yellow, red, green, blue, and purple.

Place the rainbow bears in a paper bag or container your child can not see through.

Have your child pull out a rainbow bear and place it in the first box in the correct color column.

Continue until one of the color columns reaches 10 first.  Alternatively, your child could color in the squares, too.

My preschooler and I did this activity a couple of times, and the purple bear made won twice.  

It was a great way to use vocabulary like least/ most, practice 1:1 correspondence, and more!
