Fairy Ring Math Board





Math boards illustrate geometric shapes created when counting, skip counting, multiplying and dividing. 


MATERIALS
  • Tree slice
  • Mini wood pegs
  • White and red acrylic paint
  • String



1
Trace a circle on the inside of the tree slice. We used an upside down mixing bowl as a template. 


2
Mark 10 notches equally spaced around the circle. Drill small pilot holes for wood pegs in each notch. 

3
Paint the tops of the pegs red and the bottoms white. Once the red is dry, paint tiny white mushroom spots on. Allow to dry.


4
Insert the pegs into the pilot holes and secure with a drop of glue. 




And now you have a perfectly magical place to teach multiplication and counting!


ENJOY!
