Magnetic Counting Puzzle

Magnetic Counting Puzzle

My son has mastered his ABCs so now we’re working on numbers. I love creating educational toys because I can sneak learning into the things he is already interested in. He loves anything that moves so I searched the Silhouette Online Store for transportation themed shapes.

I gathered ten different shapes and worked on resizing them, duplicating them, and filling in the colors. Of course, the trains are his favorite.

Using the print and cut feature I printed the puzzle on printable magnet paper and then cut out only the numbers.

We’ve been using this puzzle a few different ways. He can simply place each number in the correct spot. I prefer to make a longer game out of it by working together to count how many vehicles are under each number. With so many colors in the puzzle we can even work on color recognition.

I hope this inspires you to create something your little one loves learning with!
