I made learning friends number sliders for number recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
Using and x-acto knife I sliced along the two lines on the learning friend card. Taking one of the number strips I pushed the left end up through the right slice and pulled it down through the left slice.
In this activity children pull the number strips through the learning friends and read the number that is displayed in the center of the learning friend. Once all numbers have been identified on the strip a new strip is put in.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added Learning Friends Alphabet Sliders.
