Playing the Spring Game with Toddlers

With toddlers the dice in the printable pack is ideal. Matching the pictures rolled to the pictures on the board to progress from start to finish. Take turns, they will win and they will lose, but you can help them with their emotions over these two things as you play together.

Playing the Printable Spring Game with Preschoolers

It’s the perfect time to practice some counting with your preschoolers, grab a die – I particular like the large wooden ones for playing games with little ones and count. This is great for working on recognising numbers in patterns – the dots on the dice are very uniform and great for your little ones to be able to start to recognise as the numbers they are. Then help them count from the start to the finish.

Although your little one may know their numbers by rote up to 10 or 20 they need to be able to transfer these to actual counting and know what these numbers they are saying mean. Games that involve moving places really help them to see the connections.
