Keeping learning activities simple is key when it comes to teaching young kids. Young children can have very short attention spans but as long as activities are fun and engaging then kids will keep growing their love for learning.
This “Pots of Gold” St. Patrick’s Day Math Activity is not only fun… but it is designed to teach concepts ranging from number recognition, counting, 1 to 1 correspondence, and more.
This activity can be used for a variety of kids from toddlers at home, preschoolers, and kindergarten ages.

Start by printing out the Pots of Gold Activity! (This FREE printable will include a set of instructions as well.)
Cut out the cards. (It might be a good idea to use cardstock and laminate the cards… but this is not necessary)
*Side Note: Laminators are fairly cheap and come in handy for many parents and teachers! I have one and LOVE IT! They keep all my toddlers little keepsakes safe from damage… check them out HERE!
Use some pennies to practice one to one correspondence and have the child place the pennies on the coins within the each pot.
Make sure they count out loud as they place each penny down. My toddler loves counting things and this is a great way to make it visual!
Have them clip the clothespins to the correct number that matches the number of pennies in the pot.
I have also created a blank page that is made easy to edit yourself. Type the numbers you would like to work on in the boxes on the right hand side of each card. Copy and paste the number of coins you want inside each pot.
You can even print blank cards and write the numbers you want into the boxes. (If you laminate the cards you can write with dry erase marker and use it over and over again especially with numbers higher than 10.)
