Collect a number of different objects from around the home (toys, teddies, pasta). Place them in a row and count how many you have.
What happens if you add another object? Does the quantity change or stay the same?
What happens if you take an object away? Does the quantity change or stay the same?
You can try starting with a different amount of objects.

Gather 3 soft toys or use pasta/Lego pieces/beans. Make a line across the table or floor. Throw the objects in the air above the line.
