Develop your child's early math skills with these 3 different scarecrow-themed image sets that they will arrange from smallest to biggest. Introducing the concept of sizes to a young child develops their spatial sense. Later in school, this will be called geometry.

For this activity you will need:
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.
Print the image set you wish to use and cut them up into the individual pieces.
Laminating makes the pieces more durable and I highly recommend doing this especially if you're using it in a classroom.
Jumble up the pieces then ask your child to arrange the pieces in order of size.
You can print all 3 different image sets and present them all jumbled up together. This way your child will need to sort them and arrange them by size at the same time.
