A Number Maze for Preschoolers to Count


I taped out a maze on our floor with masking and painter’s tape. To make it a number maze to practice countingI simple labeled it with numbers, with one path being in numerical order. The rest random.

[By the way: that was the extent of George's participation in the maze activity. Sitting on the maze.]

I used the tape itself as the road of the maze [instead of between the tape lines].

I made sure to include numbers that Henry wasn’t quite as familiar with [to fifteen].

He’s got 1-10 down pat, but starts getting confused at 13 [skipping to 16, then 19].

He also has troubles recognizing any double digit number, so this was great practice!

Henry grabbed his machine of choice, the combine.

And drove through the maze, in the order of the numbers.

As I suspected, he did need some help with the double digit numbers and also with the next number after 13. But overall, I was quite impressed!

A fun, interactive way to learn your numbers!

You can adjust the numbers up or down to your child’s level.

Or even do skip counting [by 5s or 10s]!

ABCs would be another fun way to do this maze!

*Beware: Use painters tape on your floor if at all possible. Other tape sticks. Bad.

    Good idea! I think little man would like riding his cars through a maze and then integrating counting for learning as well. Thanks!

    I've been wanting to do a tape maze with my little guy. Love the idea of adding numbers to it to work on counting skills as well.

  3. My Life as Mommy says

    What a fun idea! I'm going to remember this for when my Little Man gets a little older (he's 17 Months). Great idea
