Apple Grid Game: Free Math Printable for Ages 2-4

It’s apple season! The perfect time to do apple-themed activities with the kids. When my kids were little, we played Math Grid Games all the time.  I made an Apple-Themed Grid Board to share with you today. Here’s a picture of the game board:

How to Use Math Grids with your Preschooler:

• Print 2 Grid Boards per player
• Gather two different sets of tokens and one die.
• For Younger Kids: Take turns rolling the die and covering that number of apples with your tokens.  This helps kids develop one-to-one correspondence.
• For Older Kids: You can print out the grid boards with 48 apples. Then use two dice, add them together and cover that number of spaces.
• Three-in-a-Row Game: Using two sets of tokens, each player takes a turn placing a token down. The object is to get three (or five, if you are using the larger board) tokens in a row. The first player to get three (or five) in a row wins the round.
This file has both the 20-apple grid above and the 48-apple grid pictured below:

Apple Tissue Craft: If you’re on the apple theme, here’s a quick craft DD did when she was a toddler when we were doing an Apple Unit. It’s nothing fancy. All you need is a toilet paper tube, green construction paper and bits of red tissue paper that your child wads up, sticks in glue and attaches to the paper.  Easy & fun!

As you may have noticed from the pictures above, I saved the lids from glass jars to use for glue or small amounts of paint. It makes clean up easy as I just throw the lid in the rubbish bin when we’re done.
