Summer’s here and that means plenty of days spent swimming, soaking up the warm sunshine, and of course, a few fun camping trips thrown in for good measure.
Now, whether you’re actually planning a family camping trip of your own right now or not, these printable camping counting books are a great way to either get your toddler or preschooler excited about going or even just help them practice their early math skills during a preschool camping theme unit!
We, as a family, love camping and we’ve shared some of our favorite camping games, crafts, and recipes before, but this time, we’re sharing a fun printable camping counting book that you can use with your toddlers and preschoolers to get them excited and ready for the trip!
Camping Counting Book for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Like our other counting books, this one includes ten counting pages, a cover, and page inside where your child can practice writing their name.
Now, of course, they’ll practice their counting skills using some of the items that are most commonly found on a camping trip like a tent, some flashlights, marshmallows, and more!
To Assemble the Book
To turn the printable pages into a book, simply print them out, cut along the middle line (each printed page creates two book pages), and staple the pages together, in order, with the cover on top.
When your book is all put together, have your child count the camping items that they find on the pages and practice writing the correct number in the space provided. They can also color each of the pictures if they’d like.
If they’re old enough that they’ve started working on sight words, this book utilizes the words “I” and “see,” so they’ll gain some extra practice with those when they read their book.
If not, simply focus on the counting aspect with your child and let them see if they can correctly name each of the objects that they find in the book and then pair this activity with a few of these awesome camping books for kids to see if they can spot any of those items.
