Make the Apple Counting Set

Draw apples on the craft stick. We are playing with early counting numbers, so I made craft sticks with one apple through ten apples. On clothespins, I wrote the numbers 1 through 10.

Apple Counting Busy Bag - practice numbers and fine motor skills!

Then set out the clothespins and the craftsticks, and your child will clip the clothespin to the craft stick with the matching number of apples.

Easy number and counting activity with apples!

If setting out all ten sticks is overwhelming, try setting out just three or four at a time. You can also add clothespins with the written words for the numbers when your child is practicing reading numbers!

Number practice busy bag! Apple activity great for number recognition for preschooler and kindergartners!
