Recently I’ve been trying to help my daughter learn how to count. Actually I have a sneaking suspicion that she might be able to count already but either she’s forgotten or her obsession with the number eight (no, I have no idea why either) means that other numbers don’t get a look in. Either way, this simple activity for teaching numbers to preschoolers was super simple to set up and allowed us to look at numbers together in a way that was fun and also helped with hand-eye coordination.
You will need:
White card / paper
A felt tip pen
Coloured stamps – bonus points if you can find some cute ones
Preschool Number Stamping Activity
Ok, so this is obviously a super simple one but it’s perfect for when your preschooler says they want to do ‘something’ but leaves you with the stress of trying to work out what to do and as this doesn’t involves paints, glue or raiding the recycling it’s perfect for when you are a bit short on time or just don’t fancy getting the house covered in glue and feathers.
On a sheet of card I drew out some numbers using a thick felt tip pen and then gave my daughter some cute kawaii stamps which I told her she needed to do along the lines of each number, as she printed along each line we talked about what each number was or I would say ‘hey, lets do the next stamp onto number two!’
Obviously being three years old some of the stamps went elsewhere on the page but this is hardly a big deal and as my daughter loved the stamps (they are super cute, I honestly need to stop sharing my craft supplies with my kids) it meant that we could have a chat about what each stamp was a picture of too.
