Over the past couple of years, we’ve made and used quite a few different types of clip cards here in our home preschool.
They’re quick, easy, and they even make great busy bags, so why not?! Both of my kids have always loved playing with the clothespins that we use with them and they can easily fit any theme that you may be working on.
For the most part though, the majority of our clip cards have been count and clip. Count whatever themed objects they may be and place the clip on the correct number.
I knew I wanted to do a new set for the farm theme we have been working on but wanted to try to mix it up a bit with these and practice something new and since we’ve been talking quite a bit about same/different, that seemed like a great way to go!
I have to admit, they through my little guy for a loop at first as he is so used to counting out the objects and clipping the correct number on the card, but once we got started with these, he had a blast!
Within the download, you’ll find the 8 different cards that come in the set and to complete each one, your child will need to determine what animal is on top and find the matching animal to clip below.
Still super easy and a lot of fun!
Working through them all gave us the perfect time to talk a little about what makes certain things the same and what makes other things different and by the end of our activity, he had a much better understanding of what had been a slightly tricky concept for him.
All in all, both of my little ones had a great time with these, even though the youngest isn’t quite ready to match them just yet, and they make a great quick activity when you don’t have time for a lot of mess!
