Frog Number Hop Game Setup
For this activity you will need:
Plastic spinner or paperclip + pencil combination
Scissors to cut out the frog tokens
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.
Playing This Fun Frog Game
Print out the playing mat, spinner and tokens. Ideally, they should be laminated to make the game more durable.
Setup the plastic spinner or use a pencil and paperclip combination.
Cut up the sheet of tokens and use inverted wooden pegs to make them ‘stand’. You could also use your own tokens if you have some.
Spin the wheel to see how many spaces to move and have the kids race to the finish line.
Along the way, they’ll be adding and subtracting 1 or 2. This game is great for helping preschoolers practise simple sums.
