1. Have the kids start by practicing making the number 1 in lots of different ways:
backwards, upside down, wiggly, stretched, etc.

3. Add two zeros and a slightly wiggly 1 to a fat 3. You have a snake.

What numbers could you use for a pattern on the snake's back?

4. Try turning some of the other 3's into a turtle, butterfly and an alien.
Use other numbers.
