Grab some Pom Poms and blue painters tape.
Using a door frame, I placed 6-8 strips of tape of sticky side out. I made sure to tape them tightly so they didn't sag across the empty door frame.
I always semi-close the door to prevent pom poms from getting trapped on the other side.

There are so many ways for preschoolers to practice counting with manipulatives, aka tangible objects. When young children are first practicing counting, it is extremely helpful to use manipulatives in order to develop 1-to-1 correspondence and count accurately. That's why counting to 10 worksheets are a hard no for me as a teacher and a mama!
