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 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?
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.
Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.
