This clothes pin game was a good excuse to have B work with clothes pins (great for motor skill development), but it turned into a fun way to practice counting too.
Materials: clothes pins, 1 die, something to clip on (shelf from pantry shown above)
Here’s how to play:
Roll the die. Clip the corresponding number of clothes pins on the first row.
Roll the die again. Clip the corresponding number of clothes pins on the second row.
Keep going until all of the rows are filled or stop and talk about which row has more or less and start over again.
Label each row with a number 1-6. When you roll a 4, clip four clothes pins in the 4th row. When you roll a 2, clip two clothes pins in the 2nd row.
