Shamrock Clothespin Counting


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We are hoping to get out and catch a few Irish dance performances and eat some corned beef and cabbage this weekend. How are you celebrating?

I originally made a set of these cards with hearts to do this same activity around Valentine’s Day. Kelsey still plays with them every few days so I decided to make a set with shamrocks to share with you. It’s a great busy bag or quiet time type of activity.


Print these cards and cut them apart. You can laminate (or cover with contact paper) to make them a little more kid proof. Grab some clothespins. There are a few things you can do with these:

  • Identify the number on the card.
  • Count the shamrocks.
  • Clip on the corresponding number of clothespins.
  • Practice putting the cards in number order.

I’d love to know what else you come up to do with these. Enjoy!
