Egg Counting Puzzle Printable (download for free right below) – I recommend printing this printable on cardstock paper for more durability. I also recommend doing only numbers 1 to 5 for young toddlers and working on 6 to 10 another time.
Washable paint or finger paint
A pair of scissors
4 Fun Ways to Learn Counting with this Egg Counting Puzzle Activity
Ask your little one to color the eggs and numbers. Make the eggs as colorful as he/she wish! For the older preschoolers, get them to practice writing the numbers by tracing inside the numbers
Ask your little one to place a pompom on each circle and count out loud at the same time. This is a great activity to work those fine motor muscles at the same time. For the older preschoolers, challenge them to use a tweezer or chopsticks to transfer the pompoms.
incorporate some fun process art while learning to count with this third activity. Dot and count the circles on the eggs with cotton buds and paint. Or add in more sensory fun and get your little ones to use their little fingers to dot the circles with finger paint.
Save the printable from the previous activities for this one! Cut out the eggs puzzle and ask your little ones to find the matching egg shells. As they complete the puzzle, point to the numbers and count the circles.
