Counting Apples Fingerprint 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.

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

This printable counting apples book is a great, hands-on way to reinforce counting skills and 1:1 correspondence during your apple themed activities with your preschooler!

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