We have done these number puzzles before and now they are getting a much-needed makeover and update. I absolutely love these little dinosaur puzzles. They are perfect for your dinosaur loving preschooler! Like I said Rea and I did these puzzles about a year ago, so doing them again with her now is incredible because I can see how much she has grown. Last time we did this activity she needed a TREMENDOUS amount of help, but this time the only thing she needed from me was to read the number words.
With all of that said, these adorable number puzzles are a great learning activity for your preschooler to learn the various ways a number can be presented.
