Sand castle activities for preschoolers
Nothing says summer like building a sandcastle! Not all of us are lucky enough to live by a beach, but adding these cute sand castle printables to your beach theme or summer theme learning will make kids feel like they are on the warm sandy shors with the waves crashing at their feet! Kids will have fun practicing counting numbers 1-15 with these adorable free printable summer playdough mats. This summer math for preschoolers is such a fun, hands-on summer math for preschoolers, toddlers, and kindergartners.
Summer math activities for preschoolers
Start out by printing off the sandcastle printable pages in color. I suggest laminating them for durability and to make them reusable. Then cut each page in half so you have a half page number card for numbers 1-15.
Tracing Numbers for Kids
Give students playdough and toothpicks (optional). Preschoolers will count as they put flags on the sandcastle so there are the correct number of flags as the number indicated on the number playdough mat.
Number tracing for kindergarten
In the upper left corner is a spot for children to learn how to correctly form the number. Kids can use their finger to trace the numbers 1-015.
This is such a fun math activity for preschoolers.
Finally, students will practice tracing numbers with a dry erase marker. This is such a fun summer themed way to practice writing numbers!
Repeat with remaining playdough mats to practice all the numbers.
