Do your kids like eating bananas? When my girls were little they loved bananas as much as monkeys do. It was like they were little monkeys themselves. I prefer to eat them in a warm loaf of banana bread, but that’s just me. Monkeys and bananas are two peas in a pod and make a fun theme for these Monkey and Banana Counting Cards!

How fun are they, with the cute little banana manipulatives? These printable counting cards are fabulous for kids of all stages of development. They can help children who are just learning numbers or those that are practicing counting and the sequence. Even if your children have numbers 1-10 down, it’s excellent to reiterate the sequence and counting practice. The monkey theme makes them a fun game and children may not even know they are learning.

This activity is great as a busy bag or as an independent or one on one activity!
