Treasure Chest Counting Cards

Whether you have any pirate fans or not, the idea of treasure is always exciting! At the beginning of the school year (or throughout, depending on student need) I am always looking for ways that I can not only practice counting and number recognition with my students, but fine motor skills as well. These treasure chest counting cards to 12 are the perfect mix of both. Pair these with our Number Easy Readers and your kids will have so much fun mastering those early numbers!

Treasure Chest Counting Cards

Preparing these cards is super quick – simply print them out and laminate them for repeated use.

After cutting them apart, I placed them on the table where I was working with a small group, along with a basket of sequins. You could use gems as well, or other treasure type items. I chose sequins specifically because of their size and how they are a bit more tricky to pick up. This works on building up fine motor skills in little fingers as they work to grasp the “treasure.”

I did pick out the larger sequins though, that way I knew they could more easily grasp them.

Once we were all set to play, we each picked up a treasure chest card, identified the number on it, and counted out that many sequins. We placed them right on the card, and some of us even tried to make them appear as though they were “inside” the treasure chest. We definitely had fun with them!

Another way to make this activity even more fun is to work on fine motor with tweezers (these are fun ones from Amazon). Kids can use the tweezers to grab a sequin or gem from the bowl and place it on the treasure chest.
