Preparing Skip Counting Puzzles & Puzzle Mat

Another part of preparing the puzzles is the puzzle mat. This is a printable mat that you can use to help build the puzzles on. It has the space for the 10 pieces.

I like to laminate the mat and then put wall putty on it. This gives something for the puzzles to stick on.
