Number Search Puzzles are a great way to get children looking for numbers and developing number recognition skills.

They are also a good resource for developing short term number memory skills, and can be a good way to take the fear out of large numbers.

We have a range of different number search puzzles - from easier puzzles to trickier ones to work out.

With the easier puzzles, the numbers only go horizontally (left to right) or vertically downwards.
