Preschool math and kindergarten math should be filled with loads of hand-on activities and these printable number cards fit the bill for our family.
Right now, we’re working on number recognition with our oldest and I recently finished a set of Clothes Pin Number Cards for the numbers 1 through 20. First we’re working on numbers 1 through 10. Then we’ll work on 11-20, but I decided to go ahead and make the entire set all at once 🙂
These cards are a great way for your little one to get hands-on practice counting and choosing the correct numerals. With three possible answers on each card, your child not only practices choosing the correct number, but they also practice discerning which numbers are incorrect. This is a wonderful skill to develop!

These number cards are really easy to prepare. Simply click the link below. Then download the file and print the set of cards on white cardstock. After that, cut the cards apart on the solid black lines. Finally, I suggest laminating each card to make them more durable.
- clip a clothes pin or mini clothes pin to the correct number
- use colorful paper clips
- place the cards on a cookie sheet and use magnets
- use dry-erase markers or dry-erase crayons to circle the correct numbers
Our daughter loves this activity and I’m sure your child will too! Get your download below.
