These Thanksgiving counting cards and puzzles are great for preschoolers and you can use them in several different ways. I’ll tell you all about it in a minute. And for more seasonal fun, try our Cute Thanksgiving Printables set.
My youngest, my daughter, is a big fan of Math worksheets but worksheets are definitely not her only method of learning. We prefer hands-on, engaging educational activities. She does love a great printable though, same with my son, my oldest never got interested in them.
This activity is so great because of its versatility! There are many different ways to approach this. No matter what your child prefers, learning will most definitely take place. You can have your child place counters over the answer, they can circle the correct answer with a pencil or a marker in their favorite color.
Or if you cut them out, you can use clothespins and clip them onto the correct answer. Don’t forget to laminate them if you want to use them over and over. If you do laminate them, you can use dry-erase markers or dry erase crayons to mark the answers. What will your child prefer?
