Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed Printable Activity

My kids love to jump on the bed and hear me shouting "no more monkeys jumping on the bed!" like the angry mommy monkey with curlers in her hair. If your kids like the 5 Little Monkeys nursery rhyme too, they will love this free printable.

FREE 5 Little Monkeys activity for counting, learning numbers and number words. Great for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners to follow along with this classic nursery rhyme.

This FREE 5 Little Monkeys activity is great for counting, number recognition, and one-to-one correspondence. It also comes with number words for children learning to read.

I recommend that you laminate and use velcro dots to stick the pieces.

The way that I play this game with my kids is we stick all the monkeys on the bed and place the number 5 in the box. Then we start singing the song and remove one monkey one by one (as they fall off the bed) while changing the number cards, until there are zero monkeys left. 

You can see a video of my daughter playing this game:

  1. I love the products I see on your site. I want to download Five Little Monkeys, but the cursor just goes round and round and never loads. It looks like I am on Chrome. Is there anything else I can do to download? Thanks.

    1. Hi Wanda,
      You can usually download the file even if it never loads completely on your screen. Once you click on the file link, there should be a menu at the top with options to print or download. If you click the download button (it looks like an arrow pointing down) you can save it to your computer. Then, open up the file on your computer and you'll be able to view it easier and then print. I hope this helps. If you are still unable to download or print, please email me at [email protected] Thanks!
