How To Use This Printable
For this number matching cut and paste activity, you will need:
- Printable number matching pdf (download for free at the bottom of this post)
- Pair of scissors
- Glue for pasting
- Laminating machine (if you want to reuse the printable repeatedly without losing quality)
After you download the free printable number match activity, print and cut out the numbers and get them ready for pasting.
Let your child count from 1 to 10 to get things started and let them place the cut-out numbers in the correct sequence.
From there, let them count the apples on the trees, one tree at a time. They should count how many apples there are and paste the matching number.
For example, for three apples, let them count to three while you point at each apple for them to get a sense of counting.
Your little one doesn’t have to count and match all the numbers the first time. Depending on their age and level of interest, count, cut, and paste three numbers or five.
First, teach counting by following the number sequence. Once your child is used to counting, you can pick numbers and quantities randomly to make things a little bit challenging and improve their memory skills.
Since children learn the most when they are having fun, make sure you add a lot of smiles, and a playful tone, and be flexible and ready to do something else in case they are not instantly interested.
