What's the math in this game?

Starting this game with 5 tokens is helpful because children have 5 fingers on their hand. Their five fingers can help them keep track of the five tokens they first saw, and then figure out how many tokens are hiding. You can still encourage children to count the tokens they can’t see! Point to each token beneath the cloth and say its number name: “1, 2, 3…”
