Playing games is a great way to help kids count, and keep them occupied. As well as activities that are fun for two, there are lots of great counting games that two or more children can enjoy. And when it comes to joining in – the more the merrier.
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?
Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
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.
