We’ll be on a lighter summer schedule so that we can spend our afternoons outside but I do keep the basic subjects going while adding in some fun studies we didn’t get to in the year.
I’m a big believer that little kids should start working on their numbers at a young age. This is because no matter how old they get, numbers are the one thing that is always going to stay the same.
These math worksheets are a great way to make counting fun while enjoying the summer weather.
Teaching your child to count to 20 is a simple way you can instill math in their brains at a very young age. And the sooner that they learn how to count to 20, the sooner that they’ll learn how to count to 100 or 1000 or more.
The great thing about these summer counting mats is that you can easily print them out and take them with you on your travels. That way, you can talk to the kids about all the different things that you can count on during your travels down the road.

Summer Counting Mats Supplies
You don’t need many supplies for these printable counting mats and the ones that you do need are listed below.
You can print these out and laminate them to make them sturdy. Alternatively, you could also place them in page protectors.
The first page includes counters you can cut and add to the various mats. Otherwise, you can use pom poms, math blocks, erasers, or glass beads.
You can practice counting up to 20, but you can also use the mats for addition and subtraction. We like to switch it up a bit to keep it exciting and new.
I like to ask my daughter, how many is 4 more than 5, and then she can count and then add on.
Or how much is 3 less than 8?
There’s so much you can do with counting mats.
