Our smallest learner has been recognizing numbers for years. She can count all the way to 100 and she is so proud to tell you about it. Every. Single. Chance. She. Gets.
But I noticed that she needed a little more help recognizing number words, so I wanted to make learning that as fun as possible.
Which is how we ended up with this rainbow number word matching activity! I thought this would be a wonderful early math lesson and so I’m sharing it with all of you too!
Read on to see how to get this activity for your little ones!

Rainbow Number Word Matching Activity for Kids
For this activity, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer Paper
- Hook and loop sticky dots
- Colored pencils (optional)
Once you print out the product, use scissors to cut out the rainbows and the cloud number words.
Time to break out the sticky dots!
Just place one on each side of the rainbow and one on the back of each cloud.
Then let the kids practice matching up the number word clouds with the correct number rainbows!
One cloud goes on each side of each rainbow.
There are rainbows and clouds for the numerals and number words all the way to ten!
These would make a great busy bag activity for little ones too! Just assemble them and store them in a bag for later.
Need to save on ink? Use the lineart version!
Let the kids color the rainbows themselves, then laminate them and assemble like usual.
