Apple Number Matching Game Setup
Pick up a set of the apple number templates here.
Print the apple sheets for the numbers you will be using onto cardstock paper.
I typically use 0-20 for Kindergarten. Cut out the apple pieces and laminate them (this is optional, but highly recommended).
Cut your scrap paper into squares small enough to fit on the clothespins.
Write a number onto each of the squares so you have the same numbers on the paper as on the apples.
Tape the scraps of paper to the clothespins, one number per pin.
Prep is done!
