These Valentine’s Day Count and Clip Cards (also known as clothespin clip cards) are a great way to combine early preschool math skills and fine motor skills into one activity. Kids will work on their pincer grasp when opening and closing the clothespins while they work on their counting skills and number recognition.

Setting up the activity
Print the activity out on to card stock. Some people laminate the clothespin cards. I don’t because I am only using it for one child. If you will be using this in a classroom setting or through multiple children then laminating it would be a good idea.
Display it for the child. For older kids you can stack them like I did above. For younger kids you should probably give them a few cards at once. Follow your child’s lead here.
The clip cards contain a lot of hearts, cupid, bows, arrows and wonderful theme related artwork. I purchased the heart plate at Target in the Dollar section. I knew it would make the cutest Valentine’s display.
These clip cards would work great for toddlers and preschoolers. Toddlers will need help figuring out what the written numbers are but they can still do the clothespin clip part. My toddler really loved that part! You will also be strengthening those fingers.
