I LOVE math. It is my FAVORITE thing to teach at school, so of course I enjoy practicing it with my kids!

This low-prep math activity works on:

***Counting**

***Identifying numbers**

***Finding a missing number**

***Hand-eye coordination**

Simply write a number sequence on a jumbo craft stick and the missing number on a clothespin. (Mine are from Target $ Spot, but similar to these cute ones.) Repeat as many times as you’d like!

These colorful clothespins were purchased in the Dollar Spot at Target last summer, and we always have craft sticks on hand. Trust me, keep some of those bad boys around and you’ll find plenty to do with them!

My girl was so proud of herself that she completed it 3 times, and had to show her sisters and Daddy when they got home!

If your child is a bit older, you could use it to practice:

***Skip counting with missing numbers**

***Any type of equation with the answer on the clothespin**

***Counting backwards with missing numbers**

***Equation with missing sign: +, -, x, or divide. (ie: 4 __ 5 = 9)**

***Number names**

Comment below if you think of any other ways to use this simple, but fun activity!
