Instructions for use:
Print and laminate the toes (the ovals with the dotted lines). Add Velcro dots to the back of the toes and the top of the paws to help them stick better.
Ways to play:
- Paws can be cut out individually and laminated to create cards for matching.
- Or they can be added to a file folder to create a file folder matching activity. You can put one on each page on the inside and then one on the back of the folder to include all three pages on the file folder.
- Print and laminate the paws themselves to use as counting cards. The child can count the number of bunnies on each paw and place them in numerical order.
- Cut out and laminate the paw prints to the ground to create a path for the kids to follow in a fun game of follow the numbers.
