One of the earliest math successes for each of my kids has been when they can finally say, “I can count all the way to 100, all by myself!” There’s so much excitement, I just can’t tell them no when they beg to show me for the 23rd time that day. There’s just something thrilling for kids when they realize they can successfully count to such a large number. And then to find they can get there faster by skip counting? Genius!

Counting to 100 activities for kindergarten
I designed these games intentionally to be super easy, low-prep games. So all you have to do is print and go! You will only need a handful of other materials, then your kids can play and count all day long:
- Game board of your choice (they are in black and white to save you on printing costs)
- Crayons, colored pencils, markers, gel pens, etc (2 different colors)
- Game pieces (from a board game, unifix cubes, beads, lego mini figures, mini erasers, etc.)
- One die
Counting to 100 games for kindergarten
This download includes 3 different simple, black and white games to practice counting to 100 and practice skip counting to 100. The first counting to 100 games for kindergarten is for 2 players and is the most basic (for preschool or Kindergarten). This one page game requires a crayon for each player and a die. The next 2 games can be played with more players and are great for Kindergarten, First Grade or Second Grade. These focus on skip counting and require game pieces for each player and a die.
This game is very simple. The goal is to be the player who reaches 100 first. To get started, the first player rolls the die. They then color and count that many numbers on the hundreds chart (starting at 1). The next player then rolls a die and colors that many squares, counting on from where player one left off. For example, if player one rolled a three, they would count and color, “1, 2, 3.” Then if player two rolls a four, they start at four and count and color, “4, 5, 6, 7.” Players continue to take turns in this way until one of them reaches 100.
The first to get to 100 wins!
Skip Counting Game
The next two games require a little more of kids and provides less support. If your kids are struggling, have a hundreds chart out that they can use to see and help them skip count. This game is also really easy and straightforward. The goal is simply to be the first to make it to the finish and correctly skip count to 100! To begin, kids place their game pieces at start. The first player then rolls the die and moves that number of spaces. To stay on the space, they must skip count by 5 (or 10, depending on the game) up to the number they land on. For example, if they land on 25, they would count, “5, 10, 15, 20, 25.” If they count wrong, however, they have to go back to start (or their previous space).
The first player to reach the end and skip count to 100 wins!
Even though young kids need to practice and learn big mathematical concepts, it doesn’t mean they have to drill with flash cards and worksheets.
