Printable Number Puzzles for Kindergarten
These Numbers 1-20 Puzzles are a very simple math printable activity to set up for your preschoolers, kindergarteners, and grade 1 students. After printing out the number sense puzzles on white paper or white cardstock, cut them out and laminate for durability (optional). I recommend storing these cards together in a zip lock bag. This Printable Number Puzzles for Kindergarten is such a fun way to improve fluency with counting numbers to 20, learning number words and more!
Another option is instead of laminating the cards, your child can glue the puzzles onto colored card once completed. Either way, this activity is a great way for parents, teacher, and homeschoolers to make learning fun with a hands-on educational activity!

For the children who are still learning to recognize numbers, give them the parts of one puzzle at a time in order from one to twenty. Sit with them and help them read the numbers and count the tally marks and the discs in the counting frames.
For children who already know their numbers, place all the cards on the table and let your child go through them, finding all the four pieces of each puzzle, before putting the puzzles back together, one number puzzle at a time.

Another way your child could use these cards is to turn the completed puzzles into simple addition and subtraction sums. For this your child completes one puzzle, then adds or subtracts another number, of which they complete the puzzle, then they complete the puzzle of the number of the answer to the equation. eg. Puzzle 20 subtract Puzzle 14 equals Puzzle 6. See the picture below to see how to complete this. When each puzzle has been completed, your child should be able to recognise each of the visual representations of each number. These puzzles can be reworked at anytime.
