This activity is simple and FUN!

Counting Mats

There are several ways to play this game both independently or in a friendly competition to see who can get to 20 eyes on their monster first.

  1. Just roll the googly eye dice and place that number of eyes on the monster. Continue rolling until you get to 20 eyes. Make sure to use math words like “plus”, “more” “add”, etc. to help kids learn the math vocabulary.
  2. Use a dice that has 2 sides of the dice colored red. When your child rolls a red side they will remove the number of dice they rolled. Use math words like “minus” or “less” or “take away” or “subtract” to help enhance the learning experience.

TIP: Have children count out the number of new eyes to add and then count on from the number of googly eyes already on them. This will help them get the reinforcement with larger numbers that can be lacking for many children.

For example my daughter’s monster has 3 googly eyes on already. She rolls 2 googly eyes so she counts out two eyes from the pile. She will then count on saying “4 and 5. My monster has 5 eyes altogether”

Monsters don't have to be scary, in fact these monster crafts and activities are all totally friendly and super fun! So many cute monster craft ideas for toddlers, preschoolers, prek, kindergartners, grade 1, and grade 2 students. Use these with a monster theme, weekly them, for Halloween, or as a fun educational book extension.
