Number Four Craft
Point out all the number 4's (his body is a number 4, he has a 4 on his cow and he has a number 4 on his hat). How many items are in groups of four (four cows, each cow has four legs, each side of the mustache has four whisker hairs). Add up all the fours (four cows + four legs + four legs + four legs + four legs + four hairs + four hairs = 28 fours). Count all the number 4's (his body + the 4 on his cow + the 4 on his hat = 4 fours).
