I went to Preschool Printables: File Folders/ Number In Bloom.
I copied the different pages of this file folder game.  I had to print it at 95% so it would fit a page. I did something different than what she has in her directions.
Here is what I did different:
Copy the flowers and the pages of the dots on flower pedals.
Color each flower a different color.
Place the two sheets of flowers (#1-5 and #6-10) in a clear page protector sheets (or laminate them).
Color the pedals all one color (a different color from the flowers) and put clear contact paper on them.
Place the flower pedals in a plastic bag.
Play the game.

This saved me a lot of money not having to buy velcro dots and it will last. Now have it in our "Number" box on the floor. If I come up with any other ideas to go with this game, I'll let you know. One thing you can do, is read a book about flowers. I do have a Flower Theme page you can do other activities.
