Fall is upon us, and with it comes the rustle of leaves, cozy sweaters, and the playful scampering of squirrels preparing for winter. Inspired by this lively season, I’ve created a cute squirrel and acorn counting game!
This game is designed to help your little ones practice their counting and number recognition skills in a playful and engaging way.
Your little ones will need to carefully count the amount of acorns and then use their number recognition skills to identify the matching squirrel number card.
And let’s face it, children love to count! It’s one of the main preschool math skills and an essential skill for them to develop!
So, as the leaves begin to fall and the aroma of pumpkin spice fills the air, why not get counting with this fun acorn Game?
What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?
When playing this fall math game, your children will have the chance to practice and develop skills such as:
- Counting skills – they’ll have to count the acorns carefully to ensure they are matching it to the correct number card
- 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 place the cards together
