Number Three Craft
Point out all the number 3's (his body is a number 3, he has a 3 on his ball and he has a number 3 on his hat). How many items are in
groups of three (three balls, three diamonds (on the balls), three bells on his hat, three parts of his hat). Add up all the threes
(three balls + three diamonds + three bells + three hat parts = 12 threes). Count all the number 3's (his body + the 3 on his ball +
the 3 on his hat = 3).
