Teaching Preschoolers to Count
Here’s something easy and free to do with your little ones. I love a good activity that is both fun for kids, and teaches them something at the same time.
In an effort to teach my son to count, we started playing this little scavenger hunt game. All you need is construction paper and a marker.
Simply write the numbers (I did 1-10, but you can do more depending on your child’s level) on small pieces of paper. Below each number, make the correct number of dots.
Hide the numbers around the house. Send your preschooler on a scavenger hunt to find them. Once all of the numbers have been collected, practice counting and putting them in order together. Use the dots to aid in teaching counting.
Easy as that. Teaching preschoolers to count has never been easier, or more fun.
