Giant Numbers to 20 Printables

Use the giant numbers to 20 printables to create a number collage. Our kids loved looking for numbers in magazines to cut out and stick onto to this number template. This is a great activity to encourage kids to recognise numbers in the environment.

Our kids also liked tracing, dotting, and colouring each outline which was a fun way to practice number formation.

They work really well as a student number book too!

Playdough numbers 0-20

The giant numbers can be laminated and used as playdough mats.  The kiddos loved rolling ‘snakes’ from the playdough to trace around each number. We also got them to roll balls to create matching quantities and use the number cutters.

For the last template we included a number line. These number line playdough mats helped our kids see where numbers were located when counting. They are also a great resource to build understanding about the numbers before and after each number.
