Looking for some fun preschool math games? Does your child love blocks?
If so, then you’re in luck!
Nicholas and I had so much fun with these the first time that I made them for Thanksgiving, so with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I figured we’d give them another try and I’m so glad we did.
Nicholas loved them and the fact that they are also educational makes them even more amazing!
These fit perfectly on Mega Bloks (seriously, what little boy doesn’t love building with blocks?) and give your child the opportunity to practice a number of skills.
Puzzles, like many other preschool math games, teach fine motor skills (think grasping and manipulating objects), problem solving, critical thinking, hand-eye coordination and even social skills if you and your child take turns putting the pieces together.
Not to mention the self-esteem your child builds when they accomplish their goal and the puzzle is complete.
Here in our house, we play with a lot of puzzles.
With Nicholas’ fine motor skills being slightly underdeveloped and his autism causing verbal delays, games and activities like these create the perfect learning opportunity for him.
While puzzles in general will put his fine motor skills to work, using the blocks makes it fun and helps keep him engaged. On top of that, we practice using our words. We look at all of the pictures and count the objects, name the shapes we find and the colors we see .
Go ahead, try them out! Have some fun building while giving your little one’s mind a fantastic workout!
