Starfish Counting Game

What do starfish and pom-poms have in common? The two can be combined to create a fun, beach-themed math game.I cut out two starfish drawings and added ten circles to each to create a fun counting game. Starfish have circular bumps on their arms--which, as it turns out, are a perfect place to put pom-poms!
