The “My Hollydog” Big Numbers 1-10 is full of great number activities for preschoolers! These activity sheets are perfect for building number recognition! Each sheet comes with a large number that can be filled in with markers, crayons, or watercolors. Be sure to count the number of corresponding dog bones at the top of the page. Read the phrase accompanying the number out loud to begin the formation of how to write numbers.
Numbers for Preschoolers!
Watercolors are a great way to fill in each Hollydog number. If you are doing a color of the week, use that color to fill in the number. Stickers are another good way to get creative and build pincher strength. Have you ever tried Q-tip painting? It’s a great technique for building fine motor skills and adds some variety into worksheets. Pick a paint color of your choice and dip one end of the Q-tip into the paint. Fill in the number with small dots of paint by placing the end of the Q-tip to the paper. This way of painting is great because it’s not quite as messy as other techniques.
Number Activities for Preschoolers
Don’t forget about mini stamps and nuudles. Mini stamps can be fun because you can pick a pack with a theme, or use a stamp that goes with your classroom lesson plan for the week. Nuudles are tons of fun. Cut them to any size you like, dip one end in water, and then stick it to the paper! Have you tried out puffy paint? These sheets are great for this technique! It’s a great chance to combine a sensory activity with learning about numbers!
