Fall has recently started so we are going full swing with Autumn crafts, but I still like to make sure that we keep up the learning crafts as well ! So a few days ago we did a preschool learning activity involving counting and had a great time. It’s great for preschoolers, but if you have been working on counting with your toddler, it’s great for them as well. So Skyla got some great practice with her numbers wheel!!
This is a fairly low prep activity but it depends on how nice you want the wheel to look ? I chose to switch up the colors and add an area for a name. The great thing is the craft is an all day, on again, off again, activity. The kiddies can practice multiple times if they want to, or just one and call it a day.
You can do this craft activity with materials that you may have in the house already (glue, construction paper, scissors, markers, cardboard). A little cutting and pasting, a little drawing, and then the kids are set to go.

1.You can use pretty much any type of cardboard you want, cut into or circle. Or you can use the cardboard found under a freezer pizza like I did! I totally got my recycle points in 🙂
2. Numbered Clothespins I got mine from the target $5 section. (or you can write the numbers on standard clothespin)
3. We used some cool scented markers for the dots!
4. White Paper
5. Stick glue and scissors
- Divide the cardboard into 10 pieces with a marker
- Cut a piece of paper into a circle and paste it in the middle. Add whatever title you like to your Number wheel. I actually added this because I messed up the middle LOL.
- Starting with one and ending with 10, draw the dots on each slice.
- Finally have your toddler or preschooler add the corresponding clothespin to the “slice”.
It was also helpful for me to teach my daughter about the clothespin as well. My son, the big boy kindergartner, finished it quickly, but I didn’t realize my daughter would need a little practice with the clothespin.
So it turned into a fine motor development and learning activity as well and I was pretty delighted by that.
Take a look at a few pictures I have below!
