When it comes to math activities for kids, there are so many fun themes! This time, I created these fun cookie counting playdough mats! My preschooler absolutely loved making the cookies from playdough, adding little playdough chocolate chips, then counting them. Kids can count using this cookie counting printable in multiple ways.
They can fill the cookie jar with the right number of cookies, they can fill in the 10-frame with cookies, they can recreate the outline of the number, and the outline of the written number.

How to Use the Play Dough Counting Mats
Print the cookie pages onto regular paper. Print as many copies as you need for your students. You can print just one copy, or print one copy for every kid in your class.
Laminate the sheets for greater durability.
Show the kids how to make cookies from playdough, then show them how to fill out the counting sheets.
Start with the number one, and gradually work your way up to 10 with the last worksheet. You can use these frames to practice addition, subtraction, and counting, depending on the skill level of your child.
