Simply download the count and write mats (below) then print off either the color or black and white versions of the mats. To get lots of use out of them, laminate then write on them with dry erase markers or crayons. They can easily be cleaned off afterwards with a tissue.

Print and cut out the sheep and store them in a small ziploc bag so they don't go missing!

If you're using the black and white versions your kids can color them before laminating.

Make a book

Instead of using these as separate mats, staple the pages together to make a 1-10 counting book for your child to color. The sheep can be glued onto the grass instead and the book kept for your child to pull out and 'read' and show to others.
Little Bo Peep rhyme
Little Bo peep has lost her sheep
And doesn't know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they'll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them.
