Watermelon Seed Count and Clip Cards

Counting is a skill that takes a lot of practice and repetition, especially when children are learning one to one correspondence and counting sets. These super fun watermelon seed count and clip cards add some much needed fun to all of that hard work. They are perfect for summer!

Getting Ready

To prepare the clip cards, I printed the download (below) and laminated the pieces before cutting them out to make them sturdy so they could hold up against plenty of reuse.

I placed 12 clothespins in a basket (one clothespin for each card – although you could reuse them if needed) and placed the basket next to the cards so that we could grab, count, and clip.

Using The Clip Cards

My kids absolutely love clip cards, so they are very familiar with how we use them. However, I still like to work through a few cards with them to be sure we are on the right track before letting them loose on their own.

We took turns picking up a watermelon card and counting the number of seeds. Most of the seeds were in scatter formation (not in straight rows or lines) so it required careful concentration and counting.

After counting up the seeds in the watermelon, we clipped the correct number below. We kept playing until all of the seeds had been counted and each card had been clipped!
