How to prepare the count and clip cards:

Print the free pages, there are 5 printable pages with 2 cards each, totaling 10 cards and numbers 1 to 10. Laminate the pages, then cut out the cards.

Use pegs or clothespins if you choose to use the cards as clip cards. This is working on those fine motor skills as well, bonus! Pretty up your pegs/clothespins with Christmas themed Washi tape, simply decorate it with markers or use colored pegs. The kids can help decorate the pegs in a craft session, how fun!

Or, simply use it as count and trace cards. If laminated, use a dry erase marker. If not, simply use a pencil to trace the correct number after counting the pictures.
