Animal Cracker counting
This adorable animal cracker counting activity is a fun, easy counting activity for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners. This is a fun math activity for toddlers that uses kid favorite animal cookies for some fun, hands-on math! We like to use this as a book based activity to go along with Goodnight Gorilla as children help sort elephants, gorillas, and other favorite zoo animals into their cages at the zoo.
Whether you are a parent, teacher, homeschooler, daycare, or work in a preschool – kids love this math activity for preschoolers to make practicing counting to 10 fun! Use this activity in classrooms as a math center, to supplement an animal theme, extra practice, summer learning, and a variety of other educational activates for early learners.
Animal Counting Activities
This is such a fun LOW PREP math activity that helps toddler, preschool, and kindergarten age kids practice counting to 10 using animal crackers.
Now print the pages of animal enclosures (animal cages) in black and white or color – depending on if you are looking to save on printing costs.
I suggest you print on cardstock or laminate them for durability.
Now cut apart the animal cookies printable. Each page is cut into 4 separate cages.
Goodnight Gorilla Activity
This animal cookies math activity for preschoolers is such a fun way for kids to practice counting!
Zoo Animals Counting Activity
Now set out a box (or handful from a bag) or animal cookies. Kids will count out the number of animals as the number of the cake. I had them put only like animals together which helped them work on visual discrimination and made sense for our activity, but you can let kids mix and match if you like.
