If you’er looking for a cute activity to practice math with these are perfect!

- Laminating pouches
These cute bug counting puzzles take only a few minutes to prepare!
That is so important because as much as I like organizing and getting our learning supplies ready, I would rather be DOING fun activities with my kids!
How To Prepare The Counting Puzzles
Getting the puzzles ready is so easy! Really all you need to do is print the pages out onto normal printer paper, laminate each page and cut the puzzle strips out.
I recommend laminating the puzzle pieces because it makes them last so much longer.
If you don’t have a laminator then you could print them onto card stock instead but it’s isn’t as durable.
I wrap each puzzle in an elastic band and store them in a plastic bag so they are easy to find. This also makes them easy to grab and go if you’re heading out on a trip.
Ideas For Using Bug Counting To 10 Puzzles
These math puzzles are perfect for preschoolers and kindergarten, even some toddlers will enjoy playing with them.
If your child is just learning how to count you can help them put the puzzle together. Every few pieces you could stop and count the numbers along the bottom together.
As your child gains more confidence in counting they can start putting the puzzle together on their own.
Once they are very good at counting you can make the puzzle more challenging by mixing multiple bug puzzles together!
