Pretty Fickle clothespin number dollsAs a homeschool mom, I’ve got plenty of creative ways to teach numbers and counting to my littler ones. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t more creative options out there, like this one from artist and mom CarrieSue Gustafson who I recently discovered on Etsy.

I’m completely smitten with her clothespin number dolls,
which she handpaints as adorable ballerinas complete with leotards,
tights, and teeny pointe shoes. They’d be such a sweet addition to your
daily math lessons, or just for good old pretend play, which might be
just as important for the little ones. Maybe even more. -Kristen

You can purchase the clothespin number dolls at Pretty Fickle.
