How to Prepare the Cookie Counting Printable Activity:
- Print the numeral circles onto a colored card stock like tan or brown to represent the cookies.
- Print the “frosting” onto white card stock or regular paper.
- Cut out both sets of shapes. Don’t worry about cutting exactly on the lines. Cookies are never perfect (at least mine aren’t).
How to Use the Cookie Counting Printable Activity?
- Match the corresponding number of dots (“candy”) to the correct numeral to make a cookie. This is our favorite way to use the printable.
- Put the cookies in order from least to greatest.
- Challenge your child to “eat” the cookie with the biggest number.
- Pass the cookies out to your stuffed animals. Give the biggest stuffed animal the biggest numbered cookie.
- Use a spatula or tongs to pick up the frosting and put it onto the cookie (fine motor skills at work). Order a correct number of cookies for your child to “bake”.
- Make play dough cookies – Laminate the cookies and frosting and use play dough to make “sprinkles” and put one sprinkle on each circle of the frosting.
- Use the cookies and a cookie sheet for pretend play in your play kitchen.
- A simple addition equation can be solved using the cookies and counting the sprinkles to find the answer.
- Write number words and match cookies to the corresponding number word.
