Activities Materials

This delightful craft is perfect to celebrate the beginning of Spring or Easter celebrations. Children will enjoy the friendly and colorful Number 5 Number Buddy and putting 5 flowers on the flower basket.

* Leanne, the creator of the Number Buddies at the has great advice on how to use this craft effectively at the link provided, and here are her suggestions:
"Point out to all the number 5's (her body is a number 5, she has a number 5 on her flower and she has a number 5 on her hat)."
* "How many items are in groups of five (five flowers, five leaves, five fingers)."

Additionally, we suggest you count out loud those items in groups of five: the flowers, leaves and fingers before assembling the craft and then point to number five 5.

* If template is printed in black & white, color the pieces as desired.
