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.
On the move
Spot the number
Try breakfast by numbers, using your morning cereal packs to count the number of words beginning with the same letter. Or, for fun, you could try and find rhyming words together.
Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.
Read a book together and play I-Spy with the pictures – can your child find something in the book beginning with say P? Or D? You could try lots of other letters, too.
