Use these numbers with cute animal faces to teach counting and numbers recognition to kids in any language.
Each design has an X amount of animal faces within the number that matches the value of each number (i.e. Number three has three little pigs ?) so your kids can count them.
The Animal Numbers Bundle includes 3 PDF files:
- 1 to 10 Numbers Individual Posters
- 1 to 10 Numbers Flashcards
- 1 to 10 Numbers Coloring Pages
And, since I love everything multilingual the bundle is available in 6 different languages, as well as a Blank version (so you can add the numbers yourself in any other language):
Bilingual kids tips
- Make a bilingual numbers memory game (a normal sized one using the flashcards or a GIANT one using the posters).
- Make dual-language numbers flashcards by pasting the cards back-to-back in your chosen languages.

DIY Addition Machine – A fun way to learn addition
A nice teacher from Mexico sent me this video where he used the Animal Numbers to make an “addition Machine” (Máquina de sumar, in Spanish).
He used two painted toilet rolls and taped them to a shoe box.
Above each of the toilet rolls he placed one of the free number flash-cards to indicate how many pom-pons the student should introduce. Then the child only needs to count the total number of pom-pons in the box to know the answer.
Another teacher from a Facebook group commented that the machine could be improved by placing a “+” symbol between the flash-cards.
If you make anything with this free numbers printable, please consider sending me your video to be featured in my Facebook Page so other teachers can get inspired by your idea.
Here are a few samples of the printables that you get with your download (the images below have mixed languages for showing purposes only, in your download all the printables are nicely organized by individual language):
