Pass the Peanut Relay Game - Tell the class that they are going to pretend to be elephants. Give each child a sock to put on his or her hand (this is their trunk). If you have a large class break them in half or into teams. Give each team a peanut. The first team to pass the peanut to all the team members and back to the first player wins. If you have a small class just have the children pass the peanut from person to person until it comes back to the start. Use a timer to see how long it takes and then do it a second time to see if they can beat their time.
Practice Counting - Pretend to be elephants by putting a sock on your hand. Place a bowl of peanuts on the table. Grab some peanuts with your "elephant trunk". Count how many you can pick up. If your child can already count well, use this game to practice your addition facts. Pick up two handfuls of peanuts count each handful and then add them together.
