Help preschool and kindergarten age children become familiar counting and recognizing numbers from 1-20 with this free printable counting game for kids.
FREE Catch 20 Bugs Counting Game for Preschool, PreK, and Kindergarten age kids. This is such a fun, visual, hands on learning activity that help skids master those difficult numbers 11-19. LOW PREP! Great math games for homeschool, summer learning, or at home preschool.


Most preschool and Kindergarten age kids can count to 10.


But most parents forget to reinforce numbers 11-20.  And these happen to be the hardest numbers to “get” because they don’t follow the same pattern as the numbers 20-100.


So practicing counting and visualizing numbers 1-20 is very important.
