Halloween Counting Clip Cards (10-20)

I love making seasonal printables! Okay, okay, maybe I just love making printables, period, but going with the seasons makes it even more fun 😉 Plus, we’re just in love with those cute clothespins you can see in the pinnable image – can you blame us?

Here’s my first-ever Halloween printable: Halloween Counting Clip Cards (10-20)!

{I’ve since also made a version for numbers 5-10 HERE.}

Pinnable image for Halloween Counting Clip Cards 10-20. At the top, it says counting clip cards on a green banner with Halloween in capital letters below. At the bottom, there's an orange banner with PDF in white on it and a Simple Fun for Kids watermark in black above it. The image shows four of the Halloween counting clip cards featuring skeletons, ghosts, owls, and cats as well as Halloween-themed clothespins.

I recently realized that while I know that E can count upwards of 30, and that she can count 10 items easily, I don’t know how many actual items she can count.

As a first step up, I made these Halloween clip cards for counting up to 20 to see how she did.

It turned out that she needed a strategy to maintain one-to-one correspondence. I told her about a couple of options, and once she started using them, she did great both with counting and number recognition.

I also have a 20-30 version in the works, so we’ll try that next.

What’s in the printable file?

The pdf contains two pages of four counting clip cards each for a total of eight clip cards covering numbers 10-20.

The individual clip cards show the following images:

  • ghosts,
  • skeletons,
  • owls,
  • cats,
  • haunted houses,
  • witches,
  • Halloween trees,
  • and spiders.

I laminated the cards, but you could simply use card stock and avoid the extra step. In a pinch, you can use regular printer paper, but the clothespins will leave their marks very quickly.

If you don’t have clothespins, don’t want to use them or your child doesn’t have the fine motor skills to work them properly, you can use other methods of marking the correct answer.

Markers, stickers or manipulatives are all good choices.

This is a great early math activity for October or any time your little learners feel a little Halloween-y.
