Estimation skills are developed over time.  Practice estimation at home, keeping the quantities within a range of numbers your child is familiar with.  Children should try to make a reasonable estimation, rather than guessing the exact number.  Try asking questions such as: 
How many cookies will fit in a container?
How many steps will it take to get to the car? 
How many people are in line at the store? 
How many goldfish crackers are in a (small) bag? 
How many Legos can you pick up with one hand?
