So I created these Counting Mats for Halloween buckets.  I know they are a simple square with a number on them, but they will make it easy to just buy some buckets and collect some stuff to count into them and you have a great little math center that is academic and fun.

And there are lots of variations out there for the buckets and lots of different things you can use as counters.  Here are some of my favorites.

Candy Pumpkin Counting Center - Free counting mats for a fun Halloween Center for Kindergarten.
