Number Crafts {Number NINE}... Monster and Caterpillar crafts

I teach a weekly class for preschoolers called "123 Learn with Me".  Each week, we learn about numbers through a variety of activities and crafts.  This week, we had some fun learning about the number nine.

Check out these fun ways to learn about the number nine: ,do a number nine search, practice printing the number nine, decorate a number nine with crayons and stickers, made a monster with nine eyes, make a cookie jar with nine cookies and craft a "count to nine" caterpillar.  (You can download the full lesson plan for free at the bottom of this post.)*

To make a monster craft:

1) Color a paper plate.  Then, add nine googly eyes, a nose, and a mouth.
2) Color strips of paper, fold them accordian-style, and glue them onto the paper plate.

To make a "counting cookies" craft:

1) Draw a cookie jar, and fill it with circles containing numbers (from 1-9).
2) Cut 9 matching circles, and draw chocolate chips on each cookie (one with 1 chocolate chip, one with 2 chocolate chips, etc...)
3) Have the child colour the cookies and match them to the correct circles. Glue in place.

To make a "count to nine" caterpillar:

1) Download the template below, and color the caterpillar.
2) Glue on googly eyes and a button nose.

I love how colorful and fun these crafts are, don't you?

Isn't this a cute way to learn about the number nine? I'll be sharing our crafts and activities for the number ten soon, so don't forget to come back and check them out.
