I love how clip cards are engaging activities that work on more than one crucial skill at the same time – counting and developing fine motor muscle strength. All the clip cards in this collection are perfect for spring and summer learning.

Playing This Fun Counting Game
Print out the set of clip cards you wish to use. I suggest to print them on thicker paper or cardstock for durability. You could also laminate them for repeated use in a classroom setting.
Once the individual cards have been prepped, just provide some wooden clips in a bowl. Your student will count the objects in the picture and place a clip at the right number.
If you don’t have wooden pegs, don’t worry! Just give your child something to mark the answer with like a mini eraser or a marker to circle their answer.
Reinforce one to one correspondence and help your child even more with this activity by providing some counters they can use. For each item they count, they will put one counter to cover it. This makes sure they don’t count the same thing twice. My son used to do this a lot!
