Print and laminate the numbers 1-10 printable flower pot math activity

Spring activities for preschoolers

Laminate the cards if you wish to make it reusable(or use a dry-erase pocket). Cut the 10 cards and provide either playdough (you’ll lover our amazing Kool Aid Playdough recipe) with flower cookie cutters, flower beads/buttons/mini erasers or dry-erase markers. This is such a fun flower math activities for preschoolers to practice counting 1-10

Spring lesson plans preschool

My initial idea was to use the counting mats with playdough, but our flower cookie cutters are big, so only 3 flowers would fit. If you have smaller flower cutters , you can use these flower playdough mats for all numbers 1-10.  Or young learner can simply roll smaller balls of playdough to make their own flowers in the pot. Playdough provides that extra sensory element to the learning process and also help strengthen little hands so they are ready for writing in the upcoming years.

Use flower erasers or other flower manipulative to practice counting with toddler, preschool,, and prek students with these spring math mats

Then, small flower counters can also be used, for instance beads(we used small wooden flowers here), buttons or flower mini erasers. If you can get your hands on candy flowers, it would be perfect too! Just keep in mind that small objects like these can end up in mouths etc. and all over the floor. Supervision is required.

Count to 10 flower by drawing them using dry erase markers

Spring math preschool

As if that wasn’t enough, you can also count to 10 flowers by drawing them in the flower pots with¬† dry erase markers. This is a good alternative and a group of kids can easily use these mats independently in your Math center, wipe clean, and repeat. This can also be used at home as a quiet time activity or while on the road as a busy bag activity.

This is such a fun, hands on spring learning activity for toddler, preschool, and kindergarten age kids.
