It's always fun to add in some themed learning printables when in a particular season.  Bugs and flowers in the spring.  Watermelon and fish in the summer.  Pumpkins and leaves in the fall.... and anything and everything snow in the winter.

Not sure about you, but my old bones just don't like the cold so much anymore.  Now my kids on the other hand, are thrilled when they see even a tiny speck of snow and beg until I agree they can bundle up and go outside to catch a snowflake or two.

My old bones would rather create hands-on printables with a winter theme instead! ha!

And that is just what I have done to help my little one practice counting to 10.

Supplies:



How to use these winter counting mats:


Download and print our Winter Counting Mats Printable.

Laminate for durability; this allows you to re-use the printables another day.   You can choose to work on the whole set of winter counting cards in one sitting, or pull out a number a day to focus on!

Provide Snowflake manipulatives or something similar like white pom poms or snowmen erasers to use as counters.

Have your child place the correct amount of manipulatives on each winter counting mat.

Each counting mat contains a ten-frame box to help create a visual of each number.  If your child needs additional support counting, place the correct amount of dot stickers on each counting card.  Thus, place one dot sticker in one box for the number 1, etc.

To extend learning:


  • have your child trace inside the written number with a dry-erase marker or 
  • provide playdough and have your child fill the inside of each numeral!  
  • encourage your child to put the counting cards in numerical order.
