Leaf Counting Clip Cards

These leaf counting clip cards are a great way to have preschoolers practice number recognition and counting from 1-20. These are perfect for fall!

I love activities that work on several skills at once. These counting clip cards encourage children to practice counting to twenty and identifying the matching numeral while strengthening fine motor skills.

Add these free preschool printables to your upcoming fall themed preschool lessons for a fun math activity.

Leaf Counting Clip Cards

Like most of my other printables, this set of clip cards is lots of fun and a breeze to prepare.

All you need to do to get started is print the pages on cardstock, laminate them for durability, and then cut them apart.

Once the cards are prepared, set them out with a handful of clothespins. Have kids choose a card and count the leaves. Then, use a clothespin to identify the correct number.

If you would like to make this a self-checking activity, place a small sticker on the back of the card behind the correct number.


Fill your book basket with a great collection of preschool leaf books. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.

If you have a hard time finding them, you can order them through my Amazon affiliate links by clicking the images below.
