If you have someone who’s into princesses, I’m sure they’ll love these adorable winter fairies counting mats. At least, that’s what I called them, not sure what the proper terminology is. All is I know is, they’re a hit with the kids!
It becomes an interactive experience or else she prefers to use her bingo dabbers, if you had dot markers they would work as well. You can place the printouts in sheet protectors to make sure they last longer.
As long as she’s learning and having fun, I’m excited to help her any way that I can! She really loves these winter fairies counting mats and every year when it’s cold, these are one of our go-to learning activities!
Winter Fairies Counting Mats
Finding seasonal activities is something that we like to do, so winter educational activities are right up our alley as well. When it’s cold outside, we like to warm up to learning more about math! We have more winter printables for kids here.
Winter Fairies Counting Mats Supplies
All you need are the simple supplies below to get started.
If you have a curious child as I do, they’ll love these printables! The graphics will draw them in but the fun will have them learning in no time at all.
And like I mentioned earlier, laminating them is key! That way, you can keep them with you in your purse or when you’re in the car and you don’t have to worry about them wrinkling or getting ruined. You can use them easily over and over again.

Recommended Winter Books for Kids
Read these wonderful winter books and pair them with your cute counting mats. Add a fun snowman craft and you’ll have a great day! Even head outdoors to build a real snowman.
There are so many great learning and outdoor activities that you can do together with your child. Have fun reading a few of these great books and then snuggling up inside to get warm!
I know I talk about reading a lot but there is a reason that I do. I’m a big believer in the fact that reading is the building block of other forms of learning. When a child can read and understand the words, they then gain the confidence needed to continue on with that learning.
Take turns reading together as well! You can even use math solving when reading by counting certain pictures or characters throughout the pages. There are literally learning opportunities everywhere.
We take turns reading pages, we count objects on pages or I ask her how many pages total we’ve read before stopping for the night. If you can find a way to make learning a part of your daily lives, do so! You won’t regret it!
Even when you’re sitting together at the dinner table, you can easily make learning a fun way to communicate without your child feeling as though you’re quizzing them. Talk about their day, ask them a few random fun and funky math questions just to keep them on their toes, and then go about the conversation. They’ll think you’re silly but they’ll be learning and won’t even realize it.
