We count everything from bugs to ducks, leaves to flower petals. It also reminded me that I need to pull out one of our most loved and cherished counting activities. Honestly, the pieces are starting to look a little dog-eared and rough around the edges but Dozens of teeny tiny fingers have pointed and counted each petal and matched it to the right flower pot. This is probably the easiest flower petal counting activity to make and if you laminate them the pieces will last for years.
To make your own Flower Petal counting game:
Materials: Brown construction paper for the pot, pink construction paper for the flowers, pencil, white paper (for your tracers & for the circles). black marker. When I made this I drew it freehand. Start with a ten petal flower and then you just have to “remove” a petal from your next flower.
