Star Counting Game – A Preschool Number Matching Activity

Cute star Counting game for toddlers and preschoolers - space themed number matching game


Here’s one for all the little space fans out there -a star counting game.

In our counting game, each star card has a different number of stars. Your little learners’ mission is to count these stars and match them to the correct rocket number card. It’s a playful way to sharpen those counting and number recognition skills.

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!

What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?

When playing this fun space math game, your children will have the chance to practice and develop skills such as:

  • Counting skills – they’ll have to count the stars 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
