Instead of numbers write the color word on the bottles. Sort pom-poms by color. Empty each bottle and count the pom-poms. Then record how many pom-poms were in each bottle. Add the two colors together for addition practice.
I think you could also have multiple pipe cleaners coming from one number and students have to show multiple ways to add numbers to get to that number. Counting with pipe cleaners and beads. Great for fine motor development too.
