Fun for everyone
Here are some great ways you can help your child count, get family and friends involved, and keep everyone entertained. More people equals more fun
Create a tally chart

Next time you’re in a shop, get your child to look for prices and check how much different things cost. You could turn it into a bit of a treasure hunt, and look for items that cost more than and less than £1. Or look for any item that costs £2 exactly. If something is on offer – 2 for £1, say – you could help your child work out what each individual item costs.
Singing counting songs such as 5 currant buns, 10 green bottles, can be a great way to help your child count backwards.
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.
