Free file folder game for preschoolers: Ice Cream Count & Match #1-10

To give my boys (Two and Four) some practice with one-to-one correspondence and number recognition, I created a file folder game for preschoolers.  It’s nice to be able to keep an activity in a file folder for easy storage and reference.  We’ll be filing this one with our Letter I activities, but we could also store it with our math games.

When you click the link, you will find two pages of colorful ice cream cones decorated with round sprinkles.  You will also see a set of 10 numbers and a label for the front of the file folder (if you care to use it).  I laminated the two pages and the individual numbered pieces.  Then I attached velcro dots to the pages and numbers.

You’ll notice that one page is just #1-5, while the other is #1-10.  I did this so that younger children can use just the sheet containing #1-5.  My Two (almost three) cannot correctly count items beyond three, and he only recognizes a few numbers.  So this was very much a Mommy & Me activity.  He enjoyed going through it once, and that was as far as his attention span cared to go.

This was a breeze for my Four, but he enjoyed it.  I did find that the tiny numbers were a bit hard to manipulate, so in the link you’ll find two sets of numbers.  The larger set will not fit exactly on the cones, but it might make the activity easier to complete — and make those little numbers less likely to disappear.
