Start off by printing the 10 pages in color. There is one for numbers 1-10. Then I suggest laminating – mostly to make them reusable since they are in color.

Toddler, preschool and kindergarten students will practice counting to 10 by making the correct number of playdough candles on the birthday cake.

Playdough Mats

For each birthday cake craft for preschoolers, students will identify the number on the upper write hand corner. They can trace the number with their finger. Then, they will use playdough to make the correct number of birthday candles for the cake. I suggest encouraging kids to count the candles when they are all on the cake.

HINT: This can be done using birthday candles that students just count out, but we really enjoyed playing with playdough. Plus using playdough can help strengthen little hands so they are ready for writing.

Students will practice tracing numbers on the bottom of the worksheets.

Next, kids can practice tracing numbers at the bottom of the sheet with a dry erase marker (if you laminated your math worksheets). Again, the numbers at the bottom correspond with the number of candles on the birthday cake playdough mat.
