Mom School: Number Stomp

number stompNumber 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! 🙂

    This is great! I used to use those foam craft squares and wrote different activities on them – like ten jumping jacks, or forward roll, etc. Then I would put music on and whenever the music stopped, whatever foam square you land on, that is what you do. Movement is sooooo good for the little ones while they are learning!

    Great way to get kids learning, having fun and moving at the same time.
