Winter Snap Cubes Activities
These free preschool printables are not just fun. They’re great math skill builders, too!
What You’ll Need
- laminating pouches
- dry erase pouches
- dry erase markers
- snap cubes (I recommend 2 sets for full coverage)
Preparing the Printables
Print these pages on cardstock and laminate for durability. If you don’t have a laminator, you can slip the pages in a dry erase pocket.
If you’d like children to build the shapes directly on the page, print one per page.
If you’d like children to use the page as a guide, you can print two to a page.
Completing the Activity
Choose a mat and gather your snap cubes. Kids will need a dry erase marker, as well.
Identify the object on the page. Talk about the letters in the name of the object, if desired.
Now, build the object by snapping cubes together. Use the image on the page as a color-coded guide.
Once children are finished building the object, it’s time for some fun math. Start by having children identify the colors used in building the shape.
Then, it’s time to start sorting and counting the cubes to complete the activity.
Have children pull apart the cubes and sort them by color. Then, count the cubes in each group. Write the number on the line. Continue until all colors have been counted.
