How To Make Math Fun For Preschoolers

Math plays an integral role in children’s development so it’s incredibly important to foster math skills and concepts from an early age. Math is used in every aspect of life so it’s essential that children begin to practice and become comfortable with it as young as possible. Math concepts don’t have to be tedious and boring but can be easily integrated into play in a fun and engaging way! Our Math Academy is a great way to help your child learn important math skills in an exciting way among their peers! We’ve found five simple and exciting ways to introduce your child to various math skills to help encourage a lifelong love of learning!

1. Counting Practice with Blocks

Materials:

-Blocks (Preferably Legos or some that can securely stack on top of each other)
-A flat surface (table, mat, tray, etc.)
-Post-It Notes
-A Marker

Instructions:

1. On separate Post-It notes, write the numbers 1-10.

2. Place the Post-It notes spread out on your flat surface in numerical order.

3. Next, ask your child to create Block/Lego towers out of the correct number of pieces as written on the Post-It notes.

4. If they get stuck, feel free to jump in and help them!

5. If your child wants more of a challenge, repeat this activity with larger numbers!

2. Subtraction Squish

Materials:

-Masking Tape
-Play-Doh
-A Marker

Instructions:

1. Place your masking tape on the floor and write out numbers 1-10 (although you can write as many as you’d like. The higher the numbers the greater the challenge will be!)

2. Next, take a small ball of Play-Doh and place it on the floor in front of each number on the tape.

3. Finally, ask your child to solve various subtraction problems and when they find the answer, they can squish the corresponding ball of Play-Doh that’s placed next to the correct number!

3. Addition Clouds

Materials:

-White Paper
-Blue Paper
-Scissors
-Blue Paint
-Glue Stick
-Marker

Instructions:

1. Cut out a few cloud shapes from your blue paper and glue them onto the white paper.

2. Next, write basic addition equations on each cloud for your child to solve.

3. Have your little one carefully cover their fingertip in blue paint and put the correct number of raindrops under each cloud equation!

4. Number Toy Hunt

Materials:

-Colored Paper
-Markers
-Small Toys (from around the house)

Instructions:

1. Write the numbers 1-5 on each sheet of colored paper and lay them on your floor.

2. One-by-one, ask your child to find the number of toys from around the house and place them on the sheet of paper!

3. Once they’ve done this, ask them to repeat the number and count how many toys they brought back.

4. If they are having trouble counting, help them count correctly and encourage them to try again!

5. Fill The Cup Counting Game

Materials:

-Small blocks or counting cubes
-Plastic Cup
-A Die

Instructions:

1. Have your child roll the die and add that many cubes to their cup.

2. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, you can use two dice and ask your child to add the numbers on both and add that many cubes to their cup.

3. Alternatively, you could start with a cup full of cubes and roll the dice to determine how many cubes to take out until the cup is completely empty!

Each of these activities is a great way to introduce your child to math in a fun and comfortable setting. Math can be daunting at first, but it doesn’t have to be by showing your child just how much fun you can have with it! By incorporating these exciting and simple activities into your child’s learning journey, they will help reinforce foundational concepts that will continue to greatly benefit them throughout their growth and development.

If your child is looking for additional support in learning about math, our Math Academy is ideal for kids ages 4-6 and will help them improve their skills, no matter what stage they’re at! With Live Classes and 20+ assignments and projects every month, your child will learn to understand math concepts and build on their background knowledge through engaging lessons and worksheets!
