FREE Printable: Dump Truck Counting Mat


If you're looking for a hands-on counting activity for your preschoolers, this counting mat inspired by one of the twins' favourite books: Dump Truck's Colors by Sherri Duskey Rinker is perfect for you!. It will help your little ones practice counting 1 to 10 in a fun way.

Bonus for busy moms: this is a super low-prep activity! All you need to do is print out the file and lay out some counters (We used math counting cubes but any type of counters will work too!) and you're all set. For extra durability, you can laminate the mat but this is totally optional.
