These dog counting cards for numbers 1-5 are a great way to introduce counting to preschoolers. My preschooler loves helping the dogs find all of their bones while practicing her numbers. It pairs up perfectly with our dog house shape roll & cover game.

To prep: Print the dogs & bones file that is available below. Laminate if desired. (I almost always laminate things I’m using with my daughter because I want to be able to use them multiple times.) You could also print on card stock if you don’t want to laminate.

Cut apart the dog cards and the individual bones.

Attach one Velcro dot to the back of each bone and attach the opposite side of the Velcro pair to each of the squares below the dogs.

I love this activity because each numbered dog has a definite stopping point. Unlike counting everything in sight or even counting the number of things on a page, the child can easily see that there is no more room for extra bones. (When counting in a random group of objects, children often count the same objects more than once.)

Plus, this activity is great for building hand strength by pulling on the velcro which is great for fine-motor skills and hand-eye coordination as they work to get the bones into the squares.
