Now that I am homeschooling the children, I am always looking for fun games and ways to teach my littles their basic preschool information. I have found that teaching them numbers, letters, etc., is best done through playing lots and lots of games. I came up with this fun counting game and free Goldfish Counting Game printable that not only promotes learning, but family time as well!
This is a great activity for those days of being cooped up due to rain, snow, or other issues with the great outdoors. This is also a fun thing for the kids to do while they’re having their snack! This could mean that the learning never stops in your household!
This printable is perfect for those in preschool, who need to recognize the numbers 1-10 in both symbol and word. Each fish is a different primary color, so it could definitely be used to teach that as well!
This printable was inspired by one of my kids’ favorite snack– Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers! It’s the perfect item to use as a counting tool for this printable. And the funnest thing is they can eat them when they’ve counted all of them out!
Grab some cardstock and print this free Goldfish Counting Game printable found below. Feel free to laminate it so you can reuse it for all kinds of counting tools, both messy and clean!
Here’s a little video of my 4 year old enjoying this fun new game! I really think she’s going to love using these sheets to help her read and recognize her numbers super fast! Please feel free to click on the pics above to print them for the kiddos in your life and allow them to be rewarded with Goldfish Crackers after they play the game. That was my daughter’s favorite part!
