Tech-free estimation/measuring/counting ideas:
Find jars, boxes, bags of collections around your home. (food in a bag/bowl, money in a jar, squares in roll of toilet paper/paper towel)
Estimate (best guess) then count to check your answer.
Estimate the distance between 2 objects using various ways to measure like hands, feet, books, ruler etc. then measure to check your answer.
Count collections around your home. (lego, Cheerios, stuffed toys, coins, buttons) You can use cupcake liners or ice cube trays to help sort and count.
