Apple Cube Template

Apple Numbers Template



Step #1

Encourage your child to color and label each square on the cube. Each square should be labeled with the number of apples shown.

Step #2

It’s time to cut out the template. Be sure to cut along the straight lines (this requires cutting in small places and should be done by an adult).

Step #3

Fold along each of the dotted lines and assemble the cube either using glue or tape to secure it

Step #4

Once your cube is made, lay the large apple numbers on the floor in numerical order.

Step #5

Roll your dice and jump to the corresponding apple on the floor.

Step #6

Continue to do this until you have worn out your little one.
