Preschool Math Games: Cardboard Cookie Math!

Hi all! Thanks for visiting my site and be sure to take a look around! Today I want to share a really fun activity that my son and daughter did about a week ago. My kids have really increased the amount of pretend play while being home, so I thought it would be nice to incorporate some of the pretend play with some preschool math games!

My son is starting Kindergarten next year, after this extended break (ugh), so I’m just covering the basics in a fun way. Cardboard cookie math will be a hit with your kids!

I love talking about crafts and sharing ideas on how to make learning fun and simple, so if you want even more great finds, check out my posts on inspiring your child to love learning and a great post on learning boards. For more fun math, check put my other math post as well!

Simple Math Preschoolers Will Love

So here is the how-to! It’s pretty simple to do.

  1. I grabbed a old cardboard box. (The thinner the better, so you are able to cut them)
  2. I cut out about 15-20 cookie sized circles are for addition and subtraction.
  3. Then I had my son grab a plate for the cookies, a spatula, and a cookie sheet.
  4. Then I grabbed a sheet of paper and set up equations. You can have your child use the spatula to complete the simple math problem.
  5. That’s it. Be creative and have fun! They can pretend to bake the cookies and do whatever they like!
