Preschool Summer Math Activities

Summer learning should be ultra engaging, as opposed to just plain old engaging! When gorgeous weather presents itself, or squirrely kiddos need a break, embrace it!

Break all the traditional school year rules by incorporating math games, literacy centers, or other learning activities that are so sneaky the kids don’t even realize they’re learning!

Think about incorporating outdoor games with math concepts. For example, tweak the classic game of “Link Tag,” by attaching large numbers to each player. In order to link with a person, the runner must call out that person’s number first (or add it to theirs).

Sing counting songs, making up movements as a group. Practice your “number dances” as a class, or encourage small groups to make up their own.

Practice counting forwards and backwards at snack time as you dole out crackers and watch them disappear!

Once you print and protect, your options are as vast as the summer sky! Here are some ideas:

  • Bring them outside! Fill a tub with plastic crabs and let kids get a little wet while they grab and count crabs, placing them on various number mats. Depending on the child, you could mix up the numbers or present them chronologically. You could even work on counting by 2s or 5s!
  • Place the posters randomly around an outdoor play area. Children must run to a poster, name the number, then hop/skip/jump that many times. Repeat!
  • Bring the posters or smaller number cards out to the sandbox to practice drawing numbers in the sand.
  • Use ten frames and mini crabs to build each number (indoors or out)!
