Cognitive skills is the primary area of development a preschooler will be improving when doing this counting board. They’re using their brains! Thinking, analyzing and counting the flowers, matching up the clothespin with the correct number and of course memorizing the number digits visually.

Fine motor skills and hand eye-coordination are also improved in this activity. The child must pinch the clothespin with their thumb and pointer finger and clip it onto the board to the correct spot. This step takes effort, especially with younger children.

Next, using the ruler, divide the circle into 4-10 sections (depending on the child’s’ age and ability to count up to higher numbers), like a pizza. We did 8 sections.

Use any stickers you have on hand and affix them to each slice. so each slice has from 1-10 stickers

Now, stick the flower stickers into each section (starting with one flower in one section and going up in count per each section). You can mix up the counts or you can go in a circle.

Finally, write numbers on each of the clothespins

For the clothespins all you have to do is label each one with a corresponding number.
