The point of the game.

We have been playing a guessing (estimating) game every day at breakfast or lunch.  Honey is pretty good at estimating and often wins the game, but estimating is not the point of the game. 

Everyday, I put a cup full of small items on the table.  Everyone guesses how many things are in the cup.  (If you can get within ten of the actual number you win a prize. )  Then Honey counts the items in the cup and we see if anyone won.  The point of the game is to get Honey to count.  When we started last week she could not count to 100 without help, now she can!  That is the point of the game.  If all of the girls learn some estimating skills in the process, who am I to complain?
