Sea Shells (+ Free Printable)

Z is 2 years 7 months old.

Z has recently become interested in the seashells that I got for her ages ago, so I've taken them out and placed them in a basket on her shelf. We've been going through Andrew Cleave's book on seashells. It's a nice coffee table book with beautiful pictures of seashells, I got a brand new copy 5 years ago when it was on sale in Jarir for only 9 Riyals (about $2.5) ; )

Since she was eagerly matching the shells to the corresponding pictures in the book, I thought I would make some cards for her using pictures from Google images, while I was at it, I thought I might as well make them into 3 part cards so that we can use them later for classification.

You can download the whole set of 26 cards  here

Trying to get her interested in counting , though she couldn't care less : (

Get the 3-part seashell cards here!
