Ice Cream Scoop Counting with Dot Stickers is a calorie-free and educational ice cream!
There’s no such thing as too much ice cream with this sticker learning activity!
We used stickers to represent ice cream scoops to practice number recognition and one-to-one correspondence in Chinese.
Activities help both my daughter and I learn and retain many important Chinese characters while having fun! However, you can do this activity in any language.
This is a fun and simple learning activity for toddlers and preschoolers who are working on basic math skills.

How to set up the Ice Cream Scoop Counting with Dot Stickers activity:
- Cut triangles to represent cones
- Label each cone with numbers. Since my family is learning Chinese as a minority language, we labeled the cones with Chinese characters and added Chinese words to the top of the page.
- Affix dot stickers (“ice cream scoops”) to corresponding number
- Model counting out loud for your child and ask her to count out loud:
yī, èr, sān, sì, wǔ, liù, qī, bā… (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8…)
Explain to your child that it is important to practice counting out loud and make a habit of counting carefully without rushing
Ask your child which ice cream cone has the most and least ice cream scoops
- Ask your child which ice cream he or she wants to eat!
