WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD – Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
This Excellerations® Tweezer Task Kit – Counting with Bugs is the perfect kit for young children that need to build their hand and finger muscles for writing and cutting skills. The tweezers offer pincher grip practice while incorporating early math skills. In this kit, children will practice counting bugs by picking them up with the tweezers and putting them in the different jars on the cards. One side of the cards has an indication of where to place to bugs to ensure the correct amount is counted out, and the other side has no indication so that you can access that the child is counting the correct amount.

  • WHAT YOU GET: This kit comes with 6 pairs of kid-friendly, easy-to-use tweezers in six colors; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. They measure 4-5/8" long. It also comes with 20, double-sided task cards measuring 6" x 9" and 72 bug counters that are approximately 1.5" to 2.25" long and come in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple colors.
  • BASIC MATH SKILLS: This kit focuses on counting and one-to-one correspondence or being able to assign an item a number. One side of the cards feature a jar labeled with a number and has white-colored splotches for children to add a bug to so they can practice counting up to the number given. On the other side of the card, the child adds the correct amount to each jar, without the white blotches to assist them.
  • TWEEZERS AND HAND STRENGTH: Tweezers are a great tool to use to strengthen hand and finger strength. They are considered a fine-motor tool that will help develop the muscles needed for writing, drawing, cutting, and more.
  • BEYOND COUNTERS: These colorful counters (and tweezers) can be used beyond this kit for counting, sorting, patterning, and more. Beyond math you can use these to tell stories, encouraging learning about different types of bugs, and even where different bugs are found.
  • CREATED BY TEACHERS: This product was created by our experienced teachers on staff. They bring best practices from the classroom to create educational products to help practice skills and strengthen math fluency.
