Free Printable Winter Math Games
Learning one-to-one counting is an important math skill your preschooler can learn. It’s important not only to be able to count on fingers but to be able to count objects and to recognize that written numbers represent a set amount of objects. This free printable Marshmallow Counting game is a fun way to work on counting skills while adding some hands-on fun! Don’t worry, if you’re not keen on providing your student with a handful of marshmallows we offer some fun alternatives as well.
