Getting Ready

I printed the pumpkin cards (below) on cardstock to give them extra durability and cut them apart. (You could also laminate the pieces if you’ll be using them in the classroom.)

I grabbed a handful of medium sized clothespins (they’re slightly smaller than the regular size so it’s easier to fit them on the cards) and invited my boys over to join me. The prep was as quick and easy as it comes.

Pumpkin Count and Clip Cards

I challenged Middle Brother (age 4) to find the smallest number in the pile first. He eagerly searched through the stack and pulled out the one. He read the number out loud and clipped one clothespin to the black dot on the card.

Super fun count and clip cards. Perfect preschool math activity for fall!

Then he hunted for number two and did it all again, continuing until all of the cards had been clipped.

Awesome count and clip cards for fall! I love this hands-on preschool math activity.

The simple, straight-forward activity was a great way to strengthen his number recognition.
