More Ideas to Add to the Numbers and Counting Tub:

Count out the correct number of clothespins to clip to each numeral card
Make a number book for each numeral - showing different ways to make that number set - use stickers, stamps, drawings, etc.
Use shape notepads to create puzzles and matching games (exp. numeral 5 on half of a mitten and 5 dots on the other half of the mitten)
Count the number of objects in a set of bags and order them from least to greatest
