Getting Ready

Prepping the skip counting puzzles was quick and easy.

I printed the sheets (below) on cardstock to give them extra durability and make the colors pop.

Then, I cut around the border of each ice cream scoop and cone to separate the pieces.

Love these skip counting puzzles!

I slid each set in a separate Ziploc (one for the 10s, another for the 5s, etc.) to keep the pieces together. Then, I called Middle Brother (age 4.5) over to join me.

I knew the activity would be a hit the moment he laid his eyes on the ice cream scoops. It was love at first sight!

He’s been practicing skip counting by tens at preschool, so I had him work on that set first.

He looked through the pile of scoops and pulled out the ten. Then, he carefully slid it on top of the cone.

Counting out loud, he realized that 20 was next.

One scoop after the next, he stacked them in order.

He was thrilled to discover that all of the ones had zeros and the tens counted up by one. It was a major ah-ha moment!

After building the tens puzzle several times, he was eager to take on a new challenge and grabbed the bag of fives.
