Spider Skip Counting Puzzles

We've talked about skip counting before, about why it's so important and why it's emphasized so much in schools. It sets the stage for other math concepts, specifically multiplication. Mastering skip counting will benefit your child so much. You can read all about skip counting here at Math Homework 101

Luckily, skip counting can actually be quite fun and there are so many hands-on and active ways to practice. Today, I'm so thrilled to get to share with you these fun and fantastic skip counting puzzles.

My lovely friend Kim at Life Over C's is the creator of these puzzles and she is so generously letting me share them here in my space. My girls have always been a fan of this type of puzzle. When they were younger, I would search all over to find this type of puzzle to print. It was just one of the tools I used when they were learning to count. Luckily this format lends itself so well to skip counting and we can continue to use them as they get older.

This spider themed pack contains 5 different skip counting puzzles. You'll find counting by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, and 6's. All you need to do is print them out and cut the pieces. It's so simple. Mix up the pieces and let your kids use skip counting to put the puzzles together. 

Thanks again to Kim at Life Over C's for sharing this with us! You can find all of Kim's awesome printables here at the Life Over C's Store. Also, make sure to stop by and check out her spider themed puzzles for double digit addition that go along with these skip counting puzzles.
