Cookie Counting Games

This batch of cookie counting games is too sweet to pass up! Kids will love practicing counting and reading the numbers 0 to 10 and you’ll love the quick and easy prep.

The games are a perfect compliment to our super popular playdough mats!

Getting Ready

To prep, I printed the two sets of cards (one with chocolate chip cookies and a second with milk glasses) on card stock to give them extra durability.

Then I copied one count and color record sheet for each child and grabbed our crayons.

Viola! We were ready to play.

(See?! I promised you it was easy to prep!)

Match Up

Little Sister (age 4) has been working hard to learn the numbers 0 to 10 so she was eager to get started.

I knew that handing her all of the numbers at once would be too overwhelming, so I split them into smaller batches.

The first group had the numbers 0 to 2.

I laid out the milk glasses in numerical order and invited Little Sister to place the matching cookie above each glass.

When she was finished, I handed her the next batch of numbers from 3 to 5… then 6 to 8… and finally 9 to 10.

With a solid review under her belt, she was ready to jump in and start playing.

We mixed up the cards and spread them out face down on the table so we could play a round of Memory.

Then we took turns flipping over two cards, reading the number written on the glass, and counting the number of chocolate chips on the cookie.

Little Sister’s first flip was a match. She took the pair of twos and added them to her keep pile.

But on my turn, I flipped over a seven and three. Since they didn’t match, I turned them back over and lost my turn.

Once we’d worked our way through the matches, we each counted the number of pairs in our keep piles and figured out who had the most.

Little Sister was the big winner!

Count and Color

The next day, we pulled out the cookie cards again for another round of practice.

This time, Little Sister took the first cookie from the pile and counted the number of chocolate chips.

Then she found the cookie with the matching number and colored it brown.

One cookie after the next, she counted and colored until all of her cookies were brown.

Our cookie games were such a motivating way to work on counting and number recognition from 0 to 10!
