Mr. R went for a preschool friend’s birthday party recently and it inspired me to create this birthday-themed activities set. This pack includes activities that help develop literacy, math and visual discrimination skills.

Set It Up

For this activity you will need:

  • Paper

  • Printer

  • Scissors

  • Crayons, paint or markers

  • Optional: laminator

Below are the supplies I use personally at home. After doing so many printable activities, I’ve found that it’s most helpful to always have these basic supplies on hand.

If you don’t have the materials needed, don’t sweat! You can get it delivered to your doorstep really quickly with Amazon Prime. You can get a 30-day free trial here.

Start It Up

Number strip puzzles are one of Mr. R’ s favorite games. There are 2 included in this pack for working on counting from 1 to 20. Print out the puzzle and cut them into strips for your preschooler to put back into order.

Similarly, there are letter strip puzzles of some simple words related to birthday parties including gift, sing, cake, etc. Just print and cut into strips to start playing.

Both the number and letter strip puzzles are actually self-checking activities since forming the picture correctly will show the child if they are putting the numbers and letters in the correct order.

Next up is the I Spy Printable. There are 2 levels for you to choose from depending on the age of your child. I Spy games are so simple but keep kids entertained for a long time.

Finally, there is an art activity – a blank template for your child to decorate their own cake. (Psst! This may just give you a great idea for their upcoming party!)
