Around the house
Kids love helping out with little jobs around the house (enjoy it while it lasts) – and they love being asked questions and challenged to do things. Try these activities when you’re at home together for a nice way to get counting every day.
Tea for two, or three or four.
Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.
If you don’t have stairs in your home, you could count footsteps on the way to bed instead. You could try guessing how many steps before they reach their bedroom door? How many steps from the door to their bed? Then count them out to get the number.
Ask your child to write about a castle they would build for a King or Queen. They could think about how many rooms it would have, what might be in the rooms, and what they’d be used for.
