DIY Ocean Clip Cards for Counting

I know you know that I love printables! But sometimes, an activity comes to mind that I don’t want to take the time to create a printable for or that I already have in printable format, but want the experience to be different for my daughter. That is exactly what inspired these DIY Ocean Clip Cards for Counting. We already have an awesome set of counting and matching ocean clips cards from our Ocean Mega Pack, but since Shiloh needs lots of practice counting and improving fine motor skills creating these ocean clip cards with the cute stickers we had was a great alternative!

These DIY Ocean Clip Cards for counting will be perfect for a preschool ocean theme! Practice counting to 6 and work on fine-motor skills with an activity you can make in less than five minutes.

Materials needed for the DIY Ocean Clip Cards for Counting:

Blue card stock

Ocean themed stickers

Cutting board or scissors

Marker

Clothes pins

Draw a grid on the bottom portion of the card. Depending on the skill level of your child, you can make two, three or four boxes. I choose three for this set.

Use one box to write the correct answer and any remaining boxes to write other number options.

You can choose sequential numbers, numbers with similar shapes such as 5/2, 7/1, 9/6, 8/0. Each option focuses on a slightly different skill.

Shiloh isn’t ready for making number choices yet, so after pointing and counting on the finished cards, we point out the matching number.

This is a great activity to pair up with some of our favorite ocean books like:

A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle

The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor by Joanna Cole

National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of the Ocean by Catherine Hughes

The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson
