DIY counting book for early learners


The pages in this book measure 7 ½ in. (19 cm.) square.


Card stock  
Hole punch   
Ring closures   
Paper numbers   
Markers or crayons

Glue colorful pictures and large numerals to each page.
Print the words clearly. You can pencil the letters onto the page using a stencil, then outline the letters with a marker.
Laminate the pages for durability.

Children can make their own counting books.
Provide shapes and colors that are easy for children to sort and count. These scallop cards make nice pre-cut pages that are easy to hole punch.


1. Outline spaces indicating how many objects will be placed on a page. I traced around a lego block with a black crayon.  

2. Children can add stickers to the boxes and also choose the corresponding numeral to place at the top of the page.

3. For younger children, draw the numerals at the top of the page so they can match them with self-stick foam numbers.

Learning through play

Arts and Crafts:
Making books with the children can be a project that lasts from Monday to Friday.

  • Monday – complete page “1” - hole punch and add the rings.
  • Tuesday – complete page “2” - add to the book.

......continue until the desired number of pages has been added to the book.

  • Decorate the covers.
