Easy DIY Math Manipulatives - GHOSTS! from craft sticks

Add a little art to your math lesson!

I was cutting the ends off large craft sticks to make puppets for another lesson when I noticed the ends looked like ghosts!
All the ends were cut one at a time with a pair of scissors. We painted them white to make them look more like ghosts. 
After the paint was dry we added ghost faces with a black permanent marker.
It was fun to make them all different.
We made 20 ghosts.
Use the ghosts the way you would use any math manipulatives; add to the group, count, take away, count by groups, subitize, etc.
