I’ll confess…my kids have never believed in monsters. Unless you count Sesame Street, that is. They do love playing pretend with silly monsters though & that makes these 4 free silly monster printables for counting to ten so much fun. They can make silly monster voices while they are counting! I can hear the Elmo counting song in my head right now. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10…11, 12. Sing it with me…lol! Your kids are sure to love these friendly “monsters” as much as we do!

Recommended Grade Level:

Materials for the Counting to 10 Monster Activities

  • Paper
  • Laminating Materials
  • Paper Cutter
  • Scissors

Counting to 10 Clip Cards

If you have never used clip cards before, they are a very simple way to get kids to use their fine motor skills while practicing other skills. Simply print and cut apart the clip cards. I usually laminate for durability. You could also print on card stock, but the cards probably will not last as long. My three year old is very rough with things, so the laminating helps things to last more than 10 seconds.

Then, have your child use a clothespin to indicate the correct answer on the cards.

  1. These are awesome!! My 3 and a half year old loved getting the pages from the printer, helping me laminate and cut out the pieces. Then we got out the markers, glue, and googly eyes to decorate her clothes pins. We followed that all up with a couple versions of counting. I put them away before she got bored with them, and she can’t wait to get them out again. She has been making up her own “games” using numbers and her clothes pins. Please please please don’t tell her that this is a learning tool!

  2. Such a cute idea, thanks for your time and making them free to your readers! My toddler is just about to start preschool and numbers is the hardest thing for her, hope this helps!
