This activity is appropriate for students who are learning their numbers, i.e. Preschool or Kindergarten kids.
To get the template for this activity, check out Tina’s blog: Fun Handprint Art.
While I only used this template for the activity of counting the leaves while I made them, Tina has a few games that can you can use with the template to make it interesting, if you want to switch it up a little.
