Printable Counting Games for Preschoolers

These printable counting games for preschoolers are a great way to tie math and literacy together.

My daughter immediately knew by looking at them that these math counting grid games go with a couple of her favorite books, “Dragons Love Tacos” and “Dragons Love Tacos 2” and she begged to use them so much that she ended up helping me laminate them.

Because there is no way I would let her use one of our activities without laminating first.
