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?

Recommended Thanksgiving Books for Kids
Tell your kids the story behind Thanksgiving with these fun Thanksgiving books, I’m a huge fan of picture books for any age.
A simple way to combine the excitement of learning with a holiday theme is to do that through books. Since there are a ton of ways to learn about holidays and didn’t aspects of Thanksgiving, opening up a book or two is a great way to start those conversations.
As you can see, the Thanksgiving puzzles are a lot of fun and the kids will love them. They’re clear and easy to see and simple to use, too. The dotted lines show the kids where to cut so there isn’t any confusion and the numbers give them clues on how to put them back together.
We like to use these over and over again so I recommend laminating the pages before you cut them so that you don’t have to reprint them later. That way if anything is spilled on them, it won’t matter at all!
