Pumpkin Preschool Math

This math activity requires very little prep work. You will love that this activity helps preschoolers strengthen fine motor skills as they work on early math skills.

Preparing the Activity

To prepare this math activity, print all the pages. I prefer to print the ten frames and number cards on cardstock and the recording page on regular printer paper.

Then, laminate the ten frames and number cards. Cut apart the number cards so that you have twenty separate cards.

Provide your child with all of the pieces of this pack along with some mini counters (pom poms, buttons, or playdough balls) and something to write with.

Completing the Activity

Turn the number cards facedown on the table beside the ten frame page. Children will turn over a card and place it in the top right corner of the ten frame mat.

Use the small counters to build the numbers in the ten frames. Once they’ve built the number, have your child find that number on the recording page and trace it.

Repeat until all numbers have been completed.


Fill your book basket with a great collection of pumpkin books for kids. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.
