Kids can practice counting while building fine motor skills with three dino-mite dinosaur counting activities for preschoolers!
There’s no better way to teach math than to provide hands-on math activities that teach and reinforce beginning math skills.
These counting activities are perfect for working on counting and number recognition while building your preschoolers’ fine motor skills.
Dinosaur Counting Activities for Preschoolers
There are three fun preschool counting activities included in today’s activity pack! Your preschoolers will love using a hole punch to “crack” the dinosaur eggs. They’ll count dinosaurs and dinosaur eggs up to 20. And, they’ll up to 20 lace beads onto chenille stems.
Each of these activities works fine motor muscles while reinforcing counting up to 25! I love activities that serve multiple purposes.
Crack the Dinosaur Egg
In this activity, little ones will identify the number on each egg. Then, they’ll use a hole punch to punch the same number of holes in the egg.
Note: With the larger numbers, it may be easier to use a mini-hole punch. This is the one I use. Or, they can use a thumbtack to poke tiny holes in the eggs. This works on a whole different set of muscles in the hand.
Dinosaur Count and Clip Cards
This activity works on number recognition and counting. Kids will count the number of objects in each set. Then, they’ll use a clothespin to identify the correct number.
Note: To make this a self-checking activity, you can place a small sticker on the backside of the correct number. Then, kids can turn the card over to see if they’ve clipped the right one.
Tape each dinosaur number card to the top of a chenille stem. Have kids identify the number on the card and thread the same number of beads onto the stem.
This is a great hand-eye coordination activity!
Your little crafters will adore these easy dinosaur crafts for preschoolers! Each one will encourage creativity and imaginative play.
Let your little ones play with their dinosaur food with this Digging for Dinosaurs pudding snack! Young dinosaur fans will dig it!
