Matching Butterflies

ages 3-6


Construction paper, scissors, pens, crayons, clothespins

Activity Detail

This is a great activity to work on early math skills. Begin by cutting triangles out of different colors of construction paper. Write a number on one triangle and draw the same number of dots on another triangle. Make sets like that for 1-10 (or 20 for an older preschooler). Then, begin the game by having your children match the number of dots to the actual number. Then clip the triangles together with a clothespin in the middle making a butterfly shape! Once you've matched everything up, you can take the butterflies apart, save everything in a box, and you have a great anytime learning activity.

I love this activity! In addition to practice counting, clipping together the triangles with the clothespins it is great for developing fine motor skills.
