0-5 Number Games with Apple Dry Erase Cards

Dry erase apple cards with free printable

Welcome to another Early Childhood Education Wednesday post, where a team of homeschooling and educational bloggers share free hands on learning activities for you to try. Last weeks theme was Colors, This weeks theme is all about 0-5 Numbers.

I shared a Color Counting book that we put together last week. Well that book is what we were still working on this week. We moved on from adding the images I printed out for them to count and glue, to adding the correct number of colored dots to each page. So this week I won’t be sharing a book, but it was fun to continue this book into the next week.

This week we used these Dry Erase Apple Cards. Cut and laminate. Use a dry erase marker to write on them.

Green Apples

Red Apples

I printed 3 of each color and used these dry erase apple cards for a lot of our activities this week.

0-5 Number Games with Dry Erase Apple Cards. Free Printable IncludedNumber Memory Match

Take 6 red apples and using a dry erase marker write the number 0-5 per card
Take 6 green apples and do the same, write the word number or draw 0-5 dots and let dry
Once dry mix them up and lay them down face side down.

To Play:
Start with the youngest child and have them flip one card over then have them guess where they think the match is. If right they get another turn. If wrong then it’s the next persons turn.
Once all the cards are up we then count how many pairs we all have.

Hide n Seek

Write 0-5 on 5 apples, the word numbers 0-5 on 5 apples, and add 0-5 dots on 5 apples.
Hide the apples
Have the child find the apples and as they find them let them tell you what number it is

Grab that Apple
Write the numbers 0-5 or you can do word numbers, and dots
You call out the number that you want and the child has to bring you that apple. For my four year old I would say “Bring me the apple that is one more than four.” She would then bring me the number 5 apple. You can also ask for one less and so on.

These are a few of the number 0-5 games that we enjoyed during the week.



During the week we listened to this 0-5 Numbers playlist that I put together for my girls to listen to while they did some independent play or playing in their sensory bin. 5 Little Ducks though was on repeat and kind of getting on my nerves a little. No, actually it got on my nerves.

    Reusable materials like this are fantastic – I always add them to our boxes and then pull them out when we are on a specific topic and use how best fits in with the child’s needed.

      Ain’t they! I love how open they are and it makes it so much easier for me then having to print up a bunch of cards for letters, sight words and more.

  3. Theresa says:

    These are great activities. I especially love the one where you request the apple that is more or less than another. Great math game!
