Count and clip cards have always been one of our favorite ways to work on numbers and fine motor skills.
They’re super easy to make, you can customize them to work with any theme, and they can be used over and over again for extra practice.
With these count and clip carrots however, we decided to make something a little bit different, something that would make our Spring counting practice a whole lot more fun!
Count and Clip Carrots That are Perfect for Spring
While we have a major love for count and clip cards around here, the truth is that after a while, even those can get a little boring if you don’t switch things up every once in a while.
Something as simple as changing the shape of the “cards” that we’re clipping though can completely change up the activity, making it feel new and fun again.
Making them is just as easy as normal count and clip cards!
This printable set includes numbers 1-20 with the numeral printed on the green carrot top and a corresponding number of dots printed on the carrot itself.
Simply print the set out, cut the pieces out, laminate for durability, and you’re just about ready to use them!
The final step is simply using a hot glue gun to attach the carrot tops to your clothespins.
Once that’s done and the glue has cooled, you’re ready to start making some carrots!
Just set them out for your child and let them know that they’ll need to match the number to the carrot with the same number of dots.
You can start with the whole set or if your child has just started learning numbers 1-20 or even 11-20, you can split the carrots into multiple sets and have them practice just a few at a time.
By the time you’ve gotten through the entire set, you’ll be counting and matching pros!
