Set It Up

For this activity you will need:

 

Paper

Printer

Scissors

Optional but recommended: 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

Choose one of the puzzles to print or challenge your child with all of them. 

There is one with the numbers 1-10 and another that goes from 11-20.

The third puzzle uses dice representation of the numbers 1-10 for subitization practice.

Once printed out, cut along the bold vertical lines to divide them into puzzle strips.

Ask your child to put them back in the right order. 

Laminating the strips will help keep the paper from bending and is recommended for group or classroom setting for durability.
