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!
Here’s what is included:
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.
Counting to 10 Two-Piece Puzzles
These are so simple! Print and cut out. Then, have your child count the pictures and find the matching numeral.
Counting to 10 Line-Up Puzzles
Practice number order with these adorable puzzles! Have your child piece together the pictures by putting the numbers in the correct order.
Counting to 10 Counters
You can use these as a sorting activity and a counting activity by having your child sort the different pictures first, counting them and then finding the matching number. For fun we put all of the numbers in order.
