Yup, its official- Spring is nowhere in sight. We have had yet another snowstorm and J (my daughter) keeps asking when she will see any grass. Today I will be sharing with you a few or our Spring math preschool activities that J did to both work on her mat skills as well as her fine motor and pencil grasp.
For our Spring Math activity, I wanted my daughter to further work on her fine motor skills as well as have some fun with clothespins and counting. Truth be told, I bought a pack of clothespin perhaps 2 years ago and never used them. So I was a very happy camper.

a) Print the Math pages that are in the Spring free printable worksheets and then cut the cards out.
b) Once your page is printed and your cards are ready, demonstrate to your preschooler what needs to be done. Count the number of flowers on each card and the clip the clothespin directly on the correct number. You may also have to show them how to use a clothespin- I did. J had no clue what it was.
c) If you do not want to use a clothespin for whatever reason, these cards can still be used with other household items. Crayons can be used to colour the number or to simply draw a circle around the number or mark an ‘x’. You can even simply print the page and slip it in a protective sheet and use a dry erase marker. Do whatever works for you.
