I love making count and clip cards – you know this if you’ve seen my Tulip, Ladybug, and Transportation themed cards. They’re fun to make, easy to prepare, and useful to do — counting and fine motor in one!
We’re learning about the letter K – and as it’s summer here (after a long winter and a dreary spring), it seemed fitting to make a kite printable.
I find a lot of free count and clip cards, but I have hard time finding ones that go past 10. My Three’s one-to-one correspondence gets dicey after he gets to six items, but my Four has been counting large groups for quite some time. So you’ll find something in this set for your older toddler, your preschooler, and even your kindergartner.

The last time we used count and clip cards (a few months ago), my just-turned-Three wasn’t too interested. This time he was enthusiastic and surprised me by counting up to six items without any trouble. He recognizes most of his numbers up to 10 now – but 6 and 9 are still toughies.
My Three wanted me to count all the objects past 6, and I did so as he watched along and matched the number. He doesn’t recognize numbers past 10, but he wanted to do every card, so this was a great introduction! My Four (pictured above) breezed through the set.
