These pumpkin theme counting clip cards will help your preschooler or pre-k student learn the numbers and improve their fine motor skills!
The cards feature lovely watercolor pumpkins because your child deserves beautiful, realistic images as they learn to count. These count and clip cards also help your child develop their subitizing skills. Subitizing is the ability to instantly recognize small quantities without consciously counting them (for example, how you immediately know that you rolled a 3 on a die).
(For a Thanksgiving theme, please see this set of Thanksgiving count and clip cards.)
Print and laminate the pages, then cut out the cards. The cards are four to a page and easy to cut with a paper cutter or scissors thanks to guide marks. I recommend a sturdy paper like cardstock for repeated use. I personally use something called presentation paper - a heavyweight paper with a special coating for bright, beautiful images. You can see a side-by-side comparison of five different papers for printables in this post.
Have your child mark the correct number with a clothespin.
To challenge your child's coordination and fine motor skills, you can have them mark the numbers with small manipulatives like counting bears or pompoms. Have them use tongs to transfer the manipulatives to the cards for a real mental and fine motor skill workout!
What other games can you come up with using these cards?
There are three pages of clip cards with numbers 1-12 so the set can grow with your child. Give them the numbers they're working on and save the additional cards for later!
