Who’s ready for a few spring math preschool activities?
Yup, it’s 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 of our Spring math preschool activities that Jay completed. These activities allowed her to work on her math 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 clothespins perhaps 2 years ago and never used them. So I was a very happy camper.

Spring Math Preschool Activities (Putting it all together)
1. Print the Spring Math Pages
Print the Math pages that are in the Spring free printable worksheets. You can do this on regular paper or even cardstock.
Cut the cards out. I love using a paper trimmer but feel free to use a pair of scissors,
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 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.
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 color 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.
