This fun number printable packet for toddlers and preschoolers is a fun and easy way to teach your little ones about numbers and counting. Your toddler will learn to recognize his or her numbers 1-10 and then learn to count pictures from 1-10 as well.
With so many people looking for fun toddler number activities and number practice sheets I thought I would share the ones that I created for my toddlers to use. I print out multiple copies of these practice sheets, staple them together to create a packet and then pull them out when my toddlers want to do “school” with their big brothers during the week. This packet is perfect for toddlers as young as 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and even 4-year-olds. A 5-year-old may even get some use out of this packet as a pre-Kindergarten review activity as well.
This fun number printable packet includes tracing numbers 1-10, counting nature-inspired images and then coloring them in. It is simple and fast so it will hold a little one’s attention. And most importantly they will have fun while they complete their number practice worksheets.
Toddler Number Activities
- It is best to start with one number at a time with younger children, especially if this is their first introduction to numbers and counting.
- Make it Fun!! This is probably the most important part. Toddlers like to play and have fun so make learning numbers a fun game for them. After your toddler or preschooler completes a number in their packet, have them find that number of toys. Or you can have them stack that amount of blocks or legos. Anything that makes counting fun!
- Use finger paint to have your toddler create the number with a different medium.
- Making the number out of play-doh or modeling clay is also a really fun idea. You could then save all the numbers that your child made and have them set up a number line to count them at the end.
How to Use These Fun Number Printables with your Toddler
Numbers 1-10 Tracing Worksheets
How you choose to have your toddler or preschooler trace their numbers is dependent on their skill level. My two-year-old enjoys tracing his numbers with his finger over and over. As an extra little bonus counting activity, I will have him trace it the number of times as that number. So for example, if we are working on the number 5 for the day I will have him trace the number 5 with his finger 5 times.
My 3 1/2-year-old will trace his number with his finger a couple of times and then he will trace it with his crayons as well. If you need non-toxic crayons for your toddler here are the 7 best non-toxic crayon brands that I use with my toddlers.
Counting and Coloring Worksheets
When it comes to the counting and coloring worksheet we will count the pictures together first. Then I encourage them to count the pictures themselves to the best of their ability. If they don’t remember the numbers I will count along with them again. I don’t want them to struggle, struggling with counting is not fun and I want them to have fun with these printables. Then they color in the pictures with their crayons as nicely as they can.
