We’re getting ready for spring and exploring the fresh, clean world! And finding bugs, of course! These free printable bug counting puzzles are the perfect complement to learning this spring! Easy prep, so that you don’t have to waste the precious warm spring days! Then, when you are done with the puzzles, find some fun insects to observe!
Materials needed for the Bug Counting Puzzles:
Scissors or paper cutter
These super cute bug skip counting puzzles take less than five minutes to prepare, which is super important when the sun is shining and the snow is gone. Because, as much as I love laminating things, being outside is much more fun.
To prepare the puzzles, print the skip counting puzzles found below, laminate and cut apart the pieces.
It’s that easy.
I wrap a rubber band around mine to store them.
Then, pull out a puzzle and have the kids work on their counting skills while they assemble the puzzle.
These puzzles have an added challenge because they don’t all start at 0.
If you have a child who is ready for more of a challenge, mix two or three puzzles together and have her sort them as she puts them together.
For fun, have your students create their own puzzles by drawing a picture, writing their skip counting numbers across the bottom and cutting into strips. Then have them trade with a partner and have the partner assemble the puzzle.
