What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?
When playing this Halloween Counting game, your children will have the chance to practice and develop some early math skills such as:
- Counting skills – they’ll have to count the monsters carefully to ensure they are matching the correct halves
- Number recognition – they’ll need to be able to recognize the numbers to match them up correctly
- One to one correspondence – this important skill (trickier than you may think) is the ability to only touch and count an object of a set once
- Fine motor skills – they will have to use a good pincer grip to pick up the cards
- Hand-eye coordination – to ensure they can move and line the two halves of the cards together
The game contains 10 number card halves and 10 halves with different monsters on.

Once they’re all cut out, I’d strongly advise laminating them to keep them looking nice and so your little ones can play the game again.

After that you’re all done!
Your children are ready to start carefully counting the monsters and matching them to the correct number halves!
Now your kids can practice their math skills in a fun cute Halloween way!
