Fingerprint Math: Counting Apples in a Tree Printable

My 4 year old loved the Counting Fish  Bubbles Math Activity we shared several weeks ago, so I decided to make another counting activity involving her fingerprints for the upcoming apple season!

Practice 1:1 Correspondence and Counting with your preschooler with this fun apple theme math activity! Use your fingerprint to make the apples or adapt activity to be re-used later with other manipulative.

This activity could be used several ways.  We chose to make it into a keepsake counting book, but you could instead laminate the printable to re-use this activity in the future by using pom poms, buttons, or some other small kind of math manipulative instead.

Whichever suits your fancy!

Preschool Counting Activity

We first began this activity working on number recognition and sequencing by putting the apple trees in order from 1-10.

Next we pulled out the red paint and Little Sis dipped her finger in and made fingerprint apples on each apple tree counting card.

So on the apple tree that said "1," she made one fingerprint apple... and so on!

Such a great hands-on way to reinforce counting skills and 1:1 correspondence!

Once the apples dried, we stapled the counting cards together to make a little keepsake booklet!

Enjoy this preschool math activity with your preschooler! Thanks to MyCuteGraphics for providing the tree clipart!
