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.
Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.
When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.
Put some music on, dance around, and get your child to count out different actions with you – like 10 hops or 16 jumps – in time to the music. It’s a good way to use up some excess energy too!
