Counting in, and counting out
You can play counting games indoors, outdoors – anywhere and everywhere you go. Try out some of these different activities with your child to keep their minds busy, wherever you are.

Spot the number
Kids love to talk about their favourite characters from their tv shows or cartoons they like. You could get them to write about them, too. Ask your child to say why they like that character? Are they funny, clever, do they have special powers?
Create a tally chart, for example to find out the family’s favourite animal or fruit or TV show. You could also do it the other way round, and find out which vegetable or type of music is their least favourite!
Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
