Count and Clip cards are a great way for children to work on counting, number recognition and small motor skills. Children count the number of ocean animals on the cards, find the correct number on the bottom and then clip it with a paperclip or a clothespin. Because of the way the game is played we recommend printing on cardstock and laminating for durability.
