Number stomp has always been a favorite game to play in our preschool and a fun way for kids that like to move to learn their numbers!
As with almost everything I do, it is very simple. Just squares of craft foam with the numbers 1-10 written on them with a permanent marker. You can use as many numbers as you want though. I think I need to add 11-20 to our number squares for this preschooler!
We lay the numbers all around the room and I will call out a number and the children have to stomp on that number. Usually we don’t have the numbers so close together (as in the picture below) and our Landon loves to try to jump to each number called without touching the floor! 🙂
We have also used the number squares to play hot lava. I put the number squares in a line across the room and the children have to say the numbers on the squares as they walk across the “hot lava” trying not to touch the floor!
To put even more movement into the activity, I think it is also fun to have them put one hand on a certain number and one foot on another. Kind of like a Twister sort of game. My kids love any type of learning activity where they can move!
Number games make this little boy happy! I sure love doing preschool at home with him!
