I’ve made color and plain versions so that you can save some ink if you want and so that your children can color in the fluttering butterflies as well!
Once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll need to print it off onto paper or card.
Then you can cut out the strips (or let your little ones have a go!). There’s 10 strips for the numbers 1-10. Then just jumble them up and see if your children can put them back together to make the picture.
You could always get a plain piece of paper and get them to stick them on to that (a good way to practice those gluing skills).
After that you’re all done!
Your children are ready to start developing their number recognition and ordering skills.
If you want to make it a bit trickier for them, you could grab some more number puzzles and mix them up so they’d have the extra challenge of sorting them as well.
