I am so excited to share this really fun and very easy activity that is educational and also fun for learning through play!
If you’ve been staring at those Halloween eye crafts on your kitchen table, I’ve an activity for you!
This one was very easy to put together and lots of fun!
I used a poster board for this preschool activity but a DIY cardboard cutout or recycled cereal box sheet will work just as fine!
I themed this easy play to learn counting spider eyes activity for learning about early years math.
You can theme it in many fun ways and I’ll be sharing below some ideas!
P.S. Not only was this activity a counting activity, it was a big to small activity too! 🙂
Let’s get into it..

DIY Math activities for preschoolers
How exactly did I put this math activity together?
Here are the steps I took to put together this simple activity:
My oldest helped me out with drawing out the spiders.
She also wrote the Big-Medium-Small underneath each spider drawing.
Now, our googly eyes came in 3 different sizes so because of this, I thought of a fun Spider Big to small activity!
My LO matched the big eyes to the big spider, the medium eyes to the medium spider and the small eyes to the small spider.
This was a really fun play to learn activity for learning about sizes in a fun way!
Fun for math
But, it did not only end in a big to small activity!
It also worked in a fun counting activity too!
My LO counted the craft eyes as she added them and she in turn learned about counting from 1-10, big to small and …
If your googly craft eyes are colorful like mine are, then talk about the colors your LO sees!
Do you have a kindergartener?
You can work on adding and subtracting the googly craft eyes for another fun set of fun math activities for kids!
Math activities don’t only need to be done on worksheets!
