What Do You Need For Construction Alphabet Cards
As always, I recommend putting all of this together ahead of time to keep the unnecessary chaos out of our lives. New things–like this colorful and fun printable– are so exciting for kids, so it's hard to keep their excited wiggly feelings under control.
That's totally normal.
I like to get all of the laminating and cutting out of the way before I bring this out to them instead of print it out and put it together while they're sitting with me.

Why Clip Cards?
I created these cards with the idea that they would be used with clothespins as counting clip cards.
This means, put simply, your child will use the cards to count, then mark off the total number of objects they find. There are so many ways to try this.
These are a great opportunity to talk about numbers with your child. The five page PDF focuses on numbers 1-10
