Practice counting skills in an engaging and hands-on way with these free Farm Counting Puzzles for Pre-K & Kindergarten!

Farm Counting Puzzles

These farm counting puzzles are fast and easy to prep, especially if you get the kiddos involved!

First, print the puzzles on cardstock and laminate them for durability. Then cut the puzzles out with either scissors (if the kids are helping) or a paper cutter (grown-ups only 🙂 ).

Place the chicken coop number pieces in a small basket or pile and the pieces with the chickens in another basket or pile.

Place the counting puzzle pieces in a small basket for easy access and organization in your centers.

Have your child choose a few pieces from either basket and place them on a flat surface such as a table or even the floor.

Next, have them search for the matching pieces in the other basket. Have them continue until they have matched all the puzzles!

Additional Ways to Play

These counting puzzles are super versatile and sure to be a hit with your kids. Here are a few additional ways we like to play!

Practice Skip Counting by 2’s

My son has been trying to skip count ever since his sister started learning about it. I was able to introduce the concept to him with the even-numbered cards. Sure he will not be an expert immediately but he enjoys trying!

Practice skip counting by 2's by only using the even-numbered puzzle pieces.

Strengthen Number Recognition and Subitizing Skills

Practice number recognition by simply placing a few random chicken coop number pieces on the table.

Next, have your child choose the appropriate chicken cards to match. You can even allow them to use counters to cover each chicken to practice with one-to-one correspondence.

Switch the puzzle pieces and work on subitizing skills! Start with the chicken pieces and kids can practice looking at the group of chickens and recognizing the number without counting. Next, they can find the matching chicken coop piece!

Each chicken piece has a matching chicken coop number piece.
