We’ve been working on counting and number recognition with our little one lately, so in the spirit of autumn, I thought I’d share a fun fall math preschool concentration game that little ones will love to play!
One of the best ways I’ve found to get my kids excited about learning is to play lots and lots of games. That way, they get to practice basic concepts without even realizing it.
So for my smallest learner, this concentration game was an easy way to help her work on counting.
And it only takes a few minutes to make too!
This would be a fantastic fall math center activity for early learners. Or you could turn it into a fall themed busy bag!

Fall Leaf Count and Match Preschool Concentration Game
To assemble the game, print the flashcards and then laminate them.
Kids can be pretty rough on pieces of paper. This way, the cards will stay crisp enough to reuse.
Here’s a tip: If you print these on regular printer paper, kids will be able to see the numbers and dice through the back. Which doesn’t make for much of a challenge.
So I printed them on patterned cardstock.
That way, the game looks better and it’s more fun for the kids to try to match up the cards without seeing what each one is in advance.
Once you’ve laminated the cards and cut them out, lay them out face-down. Let the kids practice turning them over one by one.
The goal is to match the leaf number cards with the leaf dice cards. The leaf with “5” on it corresponds to the leaf that has five dots on the die.
To make matching easier, the leaves are color-coded. You can even use them to match colors for younger kids!
