Felt board counting chart

Ladybug has been surprising me with her counting lately and now I find myself counting out everything! I wanted to make her a chart to exemplify each number to help her understand what each number 'means'

At Christmas we made a felt tree to stick on the wall. Ladybug loved taking off all the felt decorations and re-decorating it over and over again. I love how felt sticks to felt! ...and what a perfect way to make a counting chart for her!

You will need some felt squares in various colours (atleast 6 colours), scissors, glue and a pencil.

Use one colour as the backing and then cut out the numbers 1 - 10 using each of the remaining colours.

I used a hot glue gun to secure the numbers in the right place (I though about having these removable too, but decided this could confuse things)


Then cut out the coloured dots accordingly. I decided to match the colour of the dots to the numbers so that Ladybug would be able to identify which dots go with which number.

I used blutak to hang it on the wall and let Ladybug explore her new chart. She loves brushing them all off and then we sit and count all the dots back on matching the colours with their right number.
