The ocean has so much to wonder about and explore. Count different sea creatures on these ocean count and clip cards. Develop one-to-one correspondence and strengthen fine motor skills in this activity.
- Download and print the Ocean Count and Clip Cards (below).
- Cut out the four cards on each page.
- Challenge your child to count the items on the card.
- Clip a clothes pin onto the corresponding numeral. If you don’t have a clothes pin you can put a sticker on the number, circle it, or cover it with a Lego.
I love that these counting cards go up to 25, while many stop at 10. Only use the cards #20 and over for older children that will not find it too much of a visual challenge to count that many items in a small square.
Using the clothes pin to clip on the answer, strengthens fine mot0r skill development. Or peeling a sticker and placing it on the answer also strengthens fine motor skills.
Is your child interested in the ocean? Here are a few books that we’d recommend (amazon affiliate links):
