How To Introduce Addition In a Fun Way To Your Kids

Zoe's been showing interest in addition lately. So I thought of making this easy activity to help her understand addition. It's a fun way to introduce counting to younger kids as well as addition and subtraction for older kids. It's a hit for Zoe and she's been working on it for a while.
