Ocean Count and Clip Cards
I’ve got the beach on my brain this week! I sure wish I had my toes in the sand right now.
Instead, we settled for the water park, and a fun ocean-themed craft. Don’t miss these fun egg carton ocean animals I made with my nephew, Isaiah.
Today, I want to share a fun ocean-themed math printable I created for you guys!
Free Printable Count and Clip Cards
You’ll need the following items to complete these activity pages:
• printer (I have this one.)
• laminator (I have this one.)
To get started, just print out the pages and laminate them if you’d like. I prefer to print on cardstock, and then I laminate the pages for durability. This helps the cards hold up to continued use by busy little preschool hands.
To use the cards, just cut the cards apart on each page. There are a total of four per page. Mix them up, and have your child choose one.
Have your preschooler count the items on each page. Then, have them use a mini-clothespin or paperclip to identify the correct number.
To make this a self-checking activity, put a small sticker or dot on the back of the correct number so that they can turn the card over and check their work.
