The smell of peppermint is permeating the room. The tree is up. Christmas music is playing. The perfect time to use our brand new peppermint counting cards! I’m a huge fan of using themed learning materials because it helps connect learning with the things that the kids are experiencing elsewhere. Especially since a big part of my focus with my preschooler is language skills. This gives us the chance to talk about things that she is seeing and exploring during the Christmas season.

To prep: Print and laminate the peppermint counting cards (download below).
To use: Have your child cover the pictures of the peppermints on the counting cards with the correct number of peppermint candies or do like we did and use foam stickers (we left the backing on so that the cards would be reusable.)
These cards are perfect to new learners who are not ready for independent counting. The kids simply cover each peppermint picture on the card as they are counting. That way they know when to stop for each number.
