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.
Get your child to think up a tasty feast their toys might enjoy – and then get them to write everything down in a shopping list. They could think about how many potatoes they’d need to buy? What’s for dessert?
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.
Kids love doing grown-up things. So the next time you pop out for a few things at the shops, why not let your child have a go at counting out and paying at the till?
