I’ve created this charming, winter themed number matching game which your children will really enjoy using to practice their counting and number recognition skills.
These are great for children who are just beginning to count and learn to recognise the numbers from 1 -10.
There’s ten separate cards which are easy to prepare and have a number on the snowman’s hat and matching amount of coals on its belly.
Your kid’s job is simple – to correctly match them together!
What Math Skills Can Children Learn Through Playing This Snowman Number Matching Game?
This number puzzle will be a brilliant way for your little ones to learn several math skills such as:
- number recognition
- developing a strong number sense
And the awesome thing about this math puzzle is that because it’s fun (especially around Christmas and in the winter) your kids won’t even realise they’re learning!
I know I always bang on about why play is so important to children’s learning, but it’s true!
It really is the best way that they learn so if you’d like to get access to this free printable (as well as access to others) click on the image below!

I’ve made it fairly straight forward – just download them and print them out. You can print them on to card or paper – it’s up to you.
After that, carefully cut them out. There’s a pale line across the middle, just below the head, which indicates where to cut them into two.
If you print them onto paper I’d advise laminating them to keep them nice so you can reuse them.
Cut them before you laminate them though to ensure the laminate doesn’t open.
If you want a reliable and affordable laminator you can check out this one (it even comes with some laminating pouches!):
Each card has a top section with the Snowman’s head and a number in his hat, and a bottom section which has the belly and a certain number of coal buttons.
Then mix them up and let your kids have fun and develop their math skills while matching the correct heads to the bodies.
I’d love to hear how you get on with this game in the comments below and if there’s ever more printables you’d like me to have a go at making let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
Until next time,
Let’s nurture those neurons!
